Kylee Turunen

"Colours of the Island"

Public Reception Saturday March 7th 1-4

Kylee Turunen:

At the young age of 25, Kylee is an emerging Canadian artist, born and raised in Ontario and currently residing in Victoria, British Columbia. Growing up with the constant exposure to her artist father, she picked up an appreciation and excitement for creating art. She completed the Fine Art program at Toronto's Centennial College in 2009. Since then, she has continued to develop her skills as a fine artist working primarily in acrylic on canvas. 
Kylee’s work has primarily been focused on nature, stylistically ranging from realistic landscapes to more abstract paintings. She works with colour and form, often playing with opposites like curves and straight edges, or light and dark tones to create contrast within her work. Painting abstracted art allows her to escape from reality, creating something completely original from a place only in her mind. While she enjoys the freedom of expression involved in this process, it also brings her great joy to recreate the beauty that surrounds her using representational intricacy within her landscape paintings.  
Kylee is driven by the desire to see what she will create next as her work is continually changing and evolving.
