Hello! My name is Mika. I am a self-taught visual artist based out of Fort St. John. An introduction to fine art at a young age sprouted a lifelong passion for expanding creative endeavours. I focus mainly on gouache and acrylic painting, though my mediums vary. Inspired by the flora and fauna of the north, my work always dips towards surrealism. Visiting ArtsWells last summer blew me out of the water. I am applying to meet to other BC-based creatives to learn skills and to connect to a greater artistic community. If being a patron gave me this much inspiration, I can’t imagine what participation would invoke.
