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!
