Interests and Personality

BiographyI have been painting since a very young age. Many of my drawings depict personal experiences and often have a humorous note to them. I moved to Canada in 2000. On a trip to Montreal I was very taken with Naive Art, which has influenced me since. I first showed my art at the Annex Patio Art Show in the summer of 2004 and then had a very successful showing in the fall of 2004 at the St. Clair St. Art Walk. In 2005 I showed my work at the Vernissage Art Event, The Junction Art Festival, Annex Patio Art Show and St. Clair St. Art Walk. In 2007 I showed at the Guelph Downtown Festival. In 2008 I had a sold out showing at the St. Clair St. Art Walk Open market. The last show I did was the Wychwood Barn Raiser in Toronto in August 2010. Have taken a bit of a break since then....but hopefully soon I'll be showing again. :o)Bani.
InterestsI love reading and going for long walks around the city.
MusicBeatles, Simon and Garfunkle, The Travelling Wilberries, Queen, The Smiths, KC and the Sunshine band, Motown, CCR, Fleetwood Mac, Abba, Ingrid Michaelson, Beth Orton, Iron and Wine, David Gray, Kings of Leon etc. etc. the list goes on.
FilmsI like way too many to list. I love anime movies.
TelevisionBuffy the Vampire Slayer. Avatar-The last Airbender. Twilight Zone. I am a total sucker of sci-fi and fantasy shows.
BooksKitchen by Banana Yoshimoto. A short story by Avery Taylor called Remember the Roses.
HeroesPeople who follow their dreams.
