Kylee Turunen is an emerging Canadian artist, born and raised in Ontario and currently resides in Victoria, British Columbia. Growing up with a constant exposure of her artist father, she developed an appreciation and excitement for creating art. After selecting a career path in painting, she completed her schooling at Toronto’s, Centennial College, for Fine Art 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 always had a consistent theme of nature, however her style has progressed into a more abstract interpretation of her surroundings. She works with colour and form, often playing with opposites like curves and strait edges, or light and dark tones to create contrast within her work. Painting abstract and stylized art allows her to escape from reality, creating something completely original from a place only in her mind. She enjoys the freedom of expression involved in this process. Kylee is driven by the desire to see what she will create next as her work is continually changing and evolving.
