Challenge and problem solving skills are involved in Fiorentino’s work and she uses these things to track her growth as an artist and as a person. She had her work in the Appleton Museum of Art when she was only 16 years old and from that moment on started working and getting herself into any art shows that she could get into that was at her disposal. Fine Arts for Ocala started to bring her many awards each year, than getting awards such as the Award of Merit in 2002 and the Award of Distinction in 2003 has fueled her aspirations. Youngest artist to have her own booth and display her own work at the age of 19 in 2003 for Fine Arts For Ocala, now she is working on getting herself into any art festivals and galleries possible. Fiorentino plans to start a new idea of painting and work towards opening her own gallery and studio all in one, so that people may see her work as she progresses towards her changing styles. Actively working in her studio in Ocala, FL, she is working towards earning a name for herself and painting up a huge portfolio worth of paintings that express her ideas and discoveries as an artist and person.
