I’m a 29 year old woman rekindling my passion for art.
I was always drawn to art but being the child of immigrant parents, a career in art was not an option. While I drew here and there, it was never a major part of my life until the last few years. As I got older, I realized how much painting helped me relax and feel more at ease with myself.
I paint both acrylic and oil. In terms of acrylic, you will soon realize that I love painting landscapes. Maybe it’s because I live in the city (Toronto) and it lets me escape. As for oil, I’ve only dared doing abstract work. I hope that you enjoy looking at my art as much as I enjoy creating it!
PS: The portrait of me above and all the photos of my paintings are taken by my husband. You can find his work on Instagram @bertrand.riviere.photography.
