I found I kind of got bored of my paintings and from a very young age I would like just hoard art supplies. I loved playing with art supplies all the different gels and mediums and the colors and all the different viscosities they all did different things and mixed well together. 

 

was studying in Florence Italy. I did OCAD's Florence program which is just where you spend a year abroad essentially doing your own thing - a full all-inclusive pass to the office and I got to skip the lines so I was just there like every day essentially, and a lot of that like, I left Florence but Florence really never left my art.
traditional like very classical portraits just straight up almost photorealism and after a while I found I kind of got bored of my paintings and from a very young age I would like just hoard art supplies and all the - I loved playing with art supplies all the different gels and mediums and the colors and all the different viscosities they all did different things and mixed well together. And I would always just kind of do that in my own time and then just paint very traditionally and probably a bit like three or four years ago I kind of had that moment of like "why aren't I bringing these into my actual art because obviously I love playing with the materials and I love just with my actual paintings, a painting and afterwards being like like it's okay I see all the flaws in it but now. I don't know - just all the fun media really, really I think is the reason why I paint.
