This year for art we have to do a piece about colonialism. I decided to take a different approach to this project and illustrate someone else’s opinions on colonialism. This piece is based off the book “The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy which I studied last year. In the book one of the…

Folded Hands

  This piece is part of my homage to artist Kristina Alisauskaite. Her artwork is typically minimalist style and usually focuses on a singular subject. She has several paintings of hands so I decided to take this concept and create my own version. I did this using copic markers. My other minimalist-style pieces were done…


This is my 3D piece. I based the idea on something similar I saw online where someone (I don’t remember whom) incorporated a colourful stone into their wire art. Since they are quite small I made three of them and made them each in a different pose. I got the rocks from my old rock…


This is my third installment in my homage/concentration. Since the artist, Kristina Alisauskaite, has painted wigs, I decided to do my own take on this.  

Minimalist Faces

This is part of my homage/concentration that I am doing based on the work of Kristina Alisauskaite. These are mostly watercolour, but I attempted using gouache for parts of the middle one but didn’t like the effect it gave me. I went for a black and white look with an accent colour.

Random Pieces

I made the first of these in the summer and decided to make another two to go with it. This is using copics and pen.   This is an aesthetic flower square thing I made in the summer using pen. This is another piece I did in the summer. I wanted this to be cartoon-like…

More Random Pieces

This is a watercolour I did, using pen to outline/add form. I did this piece using copics this Christmas as I was watching a movie.


The second of my three scenery pictures I did in gouache. The first one can be found here. (The second one I’m in progress). It’s smaller than the other two and took only about 2 classes to complete.

DIY Christmas Gifts

This year I decided to DIY some Christmas gifts using glass paint. This is the result.

Swing Collage 1

This is the first of a series of collages I started in the summer. I was planning on having 3. This is the first complete one. I finished it in the summer but it seemed to plain so last week I splattered white paint in the background and it made it seem complete. In this…

Reclining Portrait

If you have been reading my latest blog posts you saw some of my process of developing this portrait. I started this to continue my concentration on portraiture. The hardest part for me was getting the angle of the face and this is something I’m continuing to work on with my other portraits. It took…

Mountain View 

This is a painting I have been working on for a few weeks now. I used gouache which is a medium I have never used before so it was a fun challenge to experiment with the medium. I don’t usually do much scenery so I tried new techniques for painting things such as the clouds…
