Canziani was the daughter of the artist Louisa Starr - the first female artist to win a Gold Medal in History Painting at the Royal Academy - and studied at The Copernicus, the school run by Arthur Cope and Erskine Nicholl, and at the Royal Academy Schools. Canziani travelled extensively on the continent, documenting the views and fashions of her destinations and collecting vernacular handicrafts and clothing. She went on to publish several texts including these as illustrations, Costumes, Traditions and Songs of Savoy (1911), Piedmont (1913) and Through the Apennines and the Lands of the Abruzzi (1928). Her books on travel earned her fellowship of the Royal Geographical Society. 

 

During WWI she worked as a medical illustrator, created splints and casts for hospitals, and documented the Italian Front as a photographer (a number of these photographs are now in the collection of the Imperial War Museum, London). 

 

Canziani showed extensively at the Royal Academy and Walker's Galleries and also with the Society of Women Artists, Royal Instititute of Painters in Watercolours and Royal Society of British Artists, continental galleries and solo exhibitions. She lived all her life in the family home at 3 Palace Green, in the grounds of Kensington Palace, and titled her autobiography Round About Three Palace Green (1939).
