ABOUT SANO STUDIO

Sano Studio LLC is the art + design + architectural projects portion of my studio practice. My name is Christine Cassano and I am a full-time artist in Phoenix, Arizona. In 2008, what began as an outlet for creative projects that enabled me to explore new materials and processes, Sano Studio developed as I connected with clients who valued my artistic practice, commitment to craftsmanship and design aesthetic. Over the past decade, I’ve had the opportunity to work and collaborate with a number of architectural firms, design firms, developers, universities, museums and hospitals on a variety of commissioned works, public art and

design projects. I have a strong background in fine art, design and custom fabrication. I’m able to provide clients a wide range of artistic skillsets and project-based services. A diligent work ethic combined with attention to detail, design, engineering and craftsmanship has enabled me to successfully build long-term relationships with clients, fellow trades and collectors. I excel at understanding clients’ needs while providing a collaborative approach to create innovative and engaging projects and outcomes. With 17 years of professional experience working in the arts, I am constantly researching and experimenting in my studio to gain additional insights into new materials, fabrication and processes. This takes an enormous amount of dedication and hard work, but I am grateful  the opportunity to simply be in my studio – to design and create – every day. Thank you in advance for taking a look.
