Alyson Borycki

Alyson Borycki is a self-taught, emerging artist with a background in elementary education. 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 embracement of our true selves - imperfections and all. It is a reminder of the possibilities of what can be when we overcome fear and self-doubt.

The artist’s 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. The process is at once intense yet serene, mysterious yet inviting. Much of Borycki’s inspiration is 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, yet she also hopes that others can see themselves reflected in the paintings and intends for the stories reflected on her canvases to continue evolving beyond her studio.

Borycki is currently based in Toronto, ON.
