Artist & Graphic


Shailyn Bruining

Toronto, Canada

I'm a visual artist who captures the magic of everyday moments with layers of wax medium, infusing my paintings with vivid colors of florals, skies, and light on water.

Each artwork not only reflects the beauty around us but also stands as a gentle defiance against the chaos of the world, inviting you to find joy and comfort. Through my work, I hope to offer a heartfelt embrace of the good in life.

​With my brain flipped to graphic designer-mode, I help to bring design and creative communications to companies large and small who are building their brands.
