My Story

My name is Vonna Contino Maslanka
I’ve had a propensity to create all my life, but that fearless creative bug bit me over 30 years ago and I’ve been itching it ever since. Published in many formats, I now profess that I will always have a mark in this world at the library of Congress.

Simplicity is not in my vocabulary. This complexity reflects in my work. I design what I imagine, my grasp on color and asymmetry are my trademarks. My designs are always evolving, so check back often, you will always find something different in my artistic world that surprises us both. 

Proud to be a mother of three wonderful, loving and artistic children as well!

My daughter is an amazing woman grown and thriving, I can never be more proud! She is my world my youngest, my everything! ??????

My son the eldest a US Navy man and an artist in his own right! 

Michael Contino Studios Creates his art here!

("Peace is the key to one's heart" The instinct to express peace, compassion and love is the essence of life in its purest form. We must also have great dreams and goals beyond our reach. When we meet a goal, it encourages us to further explore the boundaries and try to go beyond them. Inspiration can come from the tiniest morsel of human affection. I guess this leaves me with one crucial quest; can you conquer your dreams? Jon McEachern, July 5th 2005)
