IRA BURDA

 

I'm 19 years old.
I'm from Ukraine, a big country in Eastern Europe. My family and I moved to Canada over 2 years ago. It's been the most exciting adventure in my life! This step has totally changed all my life and my point of view on the world. When I came to Canada I didn't speak English at all. It wasn't an easy time for me, especially at the beginning. 
I have loved art for as long as I can remember. I love how art is able to unite people. You don't necessarily have to speak the artist's language to try to understand what he/she feels. 
My two favorite techniques are ink graphics and soft pastel drawing. 
I want to be a pastry chef. More than anything else, someday I hope to open my own bakery. However, I realize that I can't live without drawing as well. It’s become part of my personality. So today I would like to share my ink art with you. I hope you enjoy it!
