Biography

Antonella

Antonella grew up and still lives in the rolling hills and valleys of Vaughan, just north of Toronto in Southern Ontario. She was raised by parents who—admittedly with some hesitation—embraced their little girl's decision to pursue her love for art and design.

So off she went to study art, in the city atop colourful stilts, and design, in the suburbs surrounded by sweeping greenery. While ambitiously working away at her assignments, she found herself exploring various aspects of illustration, design, and visual art. She learned that each could lend itself to many outlets of creative expression and opportunities for success, be it for commercial purposes or to convey her own artistic message.

After graduating, her most recent endeavours involve working in-house in creative roles, plugging away at a few freelance projects, partaking in the occasional art exhibit, and throwing together plenty of personal projects, all in pursuit to do what she loves for a living. Her objective is to learn and grow as an artist while utilizing her education, creativity, and skills to benefit others. An opportunity to work in the creative industry would help to achieve these goals.

When Antonella is not creating, she is either stirring up something sweet in the kitchen, listening to the radio, pinned to a good book, or out for a long run.
