The Artists

 

Unlike others, I am not from artistic family, but we had a huge number of albums with illustrations by famous artists and I secretly dreamed of mastering the language of painting. Unfortunately, my parents could not send me to art school. Half of my life passed in the knowledge of the exact sciences and only a few years ago I decided to plunge into the world of art. This happened after visiting an art gallery in Toronto and meeting the artists. There was curiosity at first: am I able to create something?

 

I got my start at the Will Kemp Art school. “Let’s grab some biscuits and start to paint,” Will said with great enthusiasm before each new lesson. After some initial learning online, there were several sessions with talented teachers and training at the “Académie des Beaux-Arts de Montreal”. I am still looking for my own style and continue to take art classes. Oil is my favourite medium, although I plan to try out different mediums like watercolour.

 

I can say that it is never too late to learn and we should always pursue our dreams.
