Hi, I'm Alex!
I am a Toronto based painter and artist. I love to paint the outdoors and interesting objects around me that define my life and experiences.
I am inspired by my travels around the world and the beautiful Canadian landscapes I call home. My paintings are often of places I have been to while traveling or simply going for a walk in the city. I also often like to do fun still-life paintings of objects that capture my attention as well, inspiration is everywhere! I often carry a camera or my painting sketchbook with me to document places or things that capture my interest and then use these references for larger paintings.
I simplify objects in each piece to allow for stronger expression of colour and form. My paintings typically start with base colours values, and shapes to capture the focus and feeling I want to convey about the object or place, and then build from there. Through my art I want to capture the feeling of the moment, the vibrancy, and express the beauty in everyday places and things.
