“Hilly Meets Toronto” 2011

16″ x 20″ Acrylic on Canvas

Although I grew up in a small town near the country, I am currently residing in Toronto City. I felt inspired by my surroundings to capture that busy, vibrant funkiness. I miss the quiet, but there is always something fun going on. The hustle bustle energy sweeps you up with a boost that makes you want to try something new. There are many memories to be made down in the City whether you are just passing through or have made it your permanent home. The house atop the hill was inspired from the movie up and my desire for a little peace. I’m in one of those tall buildings near the CN Tower but I would not mind going for a ride on the little red sail boat.
