  • Paintings of Flowers by Clina Polloni

    After the cold days of winter. I can’t wait for the warm days of spring to see the pale daffodils or the purple irises emerging, green baby leaves appearing in the old oak tree and finally a rainbow of colors. I get my canvas, brushes, bright colors and go outside, seat in the purple chair and paint.

  • Still Life Paintings by Clina Polloni

    When I was a little girl growing up in Santiago, Chile. My mother would go to the market, I could not wait for her to come home and bring the fresh vegetables and fruits. She would put the fresh fruits in a basket, vegetables in a plate, and I would seat on the table to paint.

Welcome to Clina Polloni’s Site, A portfolio of Paintings.

Clina Polloni is a contemporary artist born and raised in Chile. After graduating from the University of Chile in 1972, moved to Raleigh, NC. Clina’s love for the arts began when she was a child and was influenced by her great grandfather, Antonio Polloni, who was a celebrated Chilean painter. Clina lives with her husband Thomas C. Allen at “Marigold Plantation” in Franklinton, North Carolina. In this beautiful farm is where she has her art studio, exhibiting her paintings and providing painting classes.


Her colorful oil paintings are inspired by her love for people, animals and nature, expressing her art through the canvas in oil painting. Clina enjoys impressionism as well as realism and was able to develop her own unique style. Equally at ease portraying the people of this land, surrounded  by spectacular blues of the skies as well as a rainbow of bright colors. Clina’s art has been exhibit in many places, including The North Carolina State Capital. You can view her art by visiting the paintings section of this website.

Her new project: “The motif of the human figure in a dialogue with natures light and colors.” In these new paintings she is portraying the people of North Carolina in their environment and activities, representing a time and history of our state.
