Originally from Ontario, I now live in Victoria, BC. As a kid I did a lot of pencil sketching, but never painted. Last year I watched a video on how to use a graph to paint animals so I thought I would give it a try. I was totally shocked at what I was able to do with some acrylic paint, a canvas and a photo! I've never taken a painting lesson but I DO love animals and have tons and tons of photos of them, so now I am going crazy painting pictures of them!
