As an emerging Canadian artist, Kylee Turunen, has garnered the appreciation and excitement of creating art from a young age. Growing up in Ontario she was exposed to art through her father, also an artist. She completed the Fine Art program at Toronto’s Centennial College in 2009 and, now a resident of Victoria, Turunen’s work has primarily been focused on nature. Stylistically, it ranges from realistic landscapes to 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.
