I am a freelance illustrator living in Toronto. I illustrate kids picture books and other things! I started to do paintings leading up to a surgery for thyroid cancer detection. I found myself so nervous and worried and painting was very soothing for me. I called my work “Paintings of things I like to Look At”. The surgery went absolutely fine and though cancer was found, it was totally removed and I am 2 years cancer free. I want to keep painting and try to ignore the little voice in my head saying “oh whats the point?”.
As I go along, the paintings get more and more layerd with patterns and shapes. I like each new one more than the last!
