Born in Vevey (French part of Switzerland)
Lives and works in Stäfa at Lake Zurich (Switzerland)
Karin is a musically influenced person throughout her life.
As colorful as her personal development is, so is her painting technique. She combies acrylic, oil, felt-paint pen, chalk and crayons. Objects made of construction foam, styrofoam, plaster, clay, soapstone, wire, steel, find their way into their work:
sometimes naively playful, sometimes realistic representational. Thematically, they inspire situations from their lives, a very lively imagination is their own.
In addition to numerous solo exhibitions, Karin E. Pinato participates in numerous group exhibitions in Switzerland, Germany and the USA (New York).
