A New Day (2021)

Artist Statement

Somedays learning math can feel exciting and light. Other days, it feels downright suffocating. On these days, I look outside the window and wish I could burst out the door and run away. Preferably with a magical fluffy animal and equally fluffy clouds.

I am a budding teenage illustrator living in Milton. My most frequent medium is traditional pen and paper, but I've expanded recently and now devote a major chunk of drawing time to digital art. As a generally happy person, my work is inspired by the fragile happy moments that make up our every day, as well as the fantastical moments we dream about. Through illustration, I aspire to create soft, colourful artwork that sparks the average viewer's imagination.
