Bio: I am an artist from Markham, Ontario. Having grown up in many parts of the world – London, Africa, Fiji islands, India and Canada – my love for art grew tremendously. My inspiration comes from the beauty I see and feel around me. Nature is beautiful and inspires me. I love to use recycled materials. I am currently working on a painting which is part of the Global Roots Project.
