painting.

i’ve always been very creative, whether it be through fashion, design or actually making art itself.

i’ve grown up with artistic genes;  my paternal grandfather was an architect and painter, while my maternal grandfather a carpenter.

for years i’ve been really interested in photography, sketching, and painting, but kept it mostly a secret until recently.  knowing my love for this type of stuff, my sister and brother-in-law gave me this ‘sensu’ paintbrush & stylus for christmas this year.

most of you probably don’t know what’s so special about this paintbrush.  well, sensu was developed to be reflect an authentic paintbrush to use with any painting or drawing app on an ipod/ipad.  my favourite app is ‘procreate’ and you probably won’t believe it until you try it, but painting on this app is exactly like using paint and paper.

since i have a pretty unpredictable schedule and am usually on the go, i found it so hard to find time to sit down and paint, but now i literally just throw my ipad and sensu in my purse and whenever i have time (think about all that wasted time on the subway!) i pull it out and create away.

thanks to sensu, i’ve been able to create so many fun paintings that i can’t wait to share.  since i’ve had such a great response to my artwork, i’ve recently opened up this etsy shop where you can take a look at my work.

i’m always looking to grow my store, so check back regularly for new pieces of work for sale.
