Alyson Borycki

Alyson Borycki is a self-taught emerging artist with a background in elementary education located in Toronto, Ontario. She tells stories of healing, personal development, and self-acceptance within her work. Drawing from personal history, struggles with anxiety, and the healing power of nature, Borycki's goal is to infuse her paintings with raw emotion and energy, as well as softness and tranquility. Her current work is a representation of empowerment, growth, and embracing our true selves, imperfections and all. It is a reminder of the possibilities of what could be when we overcome fear and self-doubt. The artists bright and playful paintings are created by adding layer upon layer of colours and shapes as the complexity of her daily experience unfolds on the canvas, like the chapters of a book. The process is at once intense yet serene, mysterious yet inviting. Much of Borycki’s inspiration are drawn from the prairie landscape where she grew up, patterns found in nature, the movement of music, conversations, memories from childhood, and graphic design. Every piece is an expression of herself and her path at any given time, but hopes others can see themselves reflected in the paintings, thus allowing the stories to continue to evolve after the paintings leave her hands.
