About Me

"I am a self taught emerging artist born and raised in North Toronto. My love for the outdoors is exhibited in my oil painting nature landscapes, inspired by my recurring time in Toronto, Ottawa, Huntsville and Brampton. 

 

Being a self taught artist, I don't ascribe to formal rules, ergo I don't implement any in my works. My approach is simply that of capturing what I feel when I get in front of my canvas. My belief that we, as individuals, are consistently evolving is reflected in my evolving styles, landscapes and mediums. Much like the landscapes that inspire me, my style conveys power, emotion and beauty with elegance and realism."

MARY PERKINS

It is my belief that our urban green spaces hold immense soothing, healing, and restorative powers. I find peace and wonder in the open spaces of nature, as I breathe in its scents, listen to urban wildlife abound, and find beauty and connectivity in the simple things that surround us: the sky, tree, grasses, earth and stone. My oil paintings reflect the beauty, emotion and natural progressions that I find in both urban and rural spaces, in different seasons, at different times of the day and night, and marvel at how they mirror the progressions in our own lives. Nature, to me, is always a source of inspiration, relaxation, reflection and rejuvenation. The purpose to collecting pieces of artwork is to find connections and joy to make your space your own. Art can add to any space, big or small. Art, through colour and texture, create an emotional impact that conjure up feelings and memories worthy of embracing. My belief that we, as individuals, are consistently evolving is reflected in my evolving styles, landscapes and mediums. Much like the landscapes that inspire me, my style conveys power, emotions and beauty with elegance and realism.
