I am currently working on one large series depicting abstract portraits based on the classic showing of my favourite artist Picasso. This series focuses on portraits of people in still life settings. This theme is called “Face Value”, which presents the perception of self-worth among all things in existence. The face value of these portraits and still life’s brings an in depth understanding of the pure essence of facial structures and the deciphering of expressions, which is also shown by my own art expression. The submitted series was completed over the months of the summer in 2010.
Born and raised in Kitchener-Waterloo, I have been painting since I was 5 years old. Starting with scribbles on colouring pages, and finger painting, I have stepped up to acrylic paintings and have been generating professional canvases since the age of 18. Self-taught, I have dedicated my life to the forms and lines of brush strokes among canvases and other mediums. Since then, I have been entered in various shows in and around Kitchener-Waterloo, exhibiting abstract expressions and landscapes also, for example Eldon Gallery. Along with my love of all art forms, I am currently studying Business at Conestoga College. After my time at Conestoga, I plan to further market my art and poetry in a professional manner to businesses and galleries amongst Canadian soil.
