Kylee Turunen was born and raised in Ontario and currently resides in Victoria, BC. Growing up with an artist father, Kylee eagerly picked up an appreciation and excitement for creating art. Since graduating from the Fine Art program at Toronto’s Centennial College in 2009, she has continued to develop her skills as a fine artist working primarily in acrylic on canvas. Kylee’s work stylistically ranges from realistic landscapes to more abstract paintings. Painting abstract 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 paint representational detail to recreate the beauty that surrounds her.
