Victoria, Vancouver Island, BC.
I believe art is a conduit for strengthening community and deepening the understanding of oneself within it.
I value living a healthy and creatively-uninhibited life. I am passionate about collaborating over common goals of innovation, thoughtful design, and greater happiness. I admire other creative professionals who have defined what it takes to make business and art one coherent, and truly satisfying, body of work. #artrepreneur
I paint acrylic canvas art with a focus on vibrancy, texture, and light. With mentors like Paul Duff (Ontario) and Penny Ridley (Nova Scotia), I was encouraged at a young age to embrace the imaginary through multiple creative mediums. I further understood how art enriches a space after specializing in Art Direction and Production Design in the Film and Television Production Program at the Humber Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Toronto (2007).
I was selected as one of twelve artists competing in the Art Battle Regional Finals (Victoria) on June 11, 2015 after competing in 5 previous rounds in Victoria.
My Abstract Acrylic Painting classes are hosted at various public and private venues including The Robert Bateman Centre, Nourish, and Poppet Creative. This is a process-driven painting approach which is accessible to artists of all levels, supplies included. Reserve.
My paintings and home decor items are being collected in Canada, USA, and Germany. #kimberlydean
