My name is Janine Carrington. I am an artist born in Toronto Ontario Canada who specializes in illustration. I was taught the basics of drawing at an early age by my father and continued myartistic education at the Etobicoke School of the Arts. From high school I was accepted into one of Canada’s most respected post Secondary visual arts institutions: Ontario College of Art and Design. There I spent five years working in various disciplines including Drawing and painting, film and video, new media and printmaking. I spent my last year of college in Florence, Italy being exposed to the old masters.
After graduation I knew I had gained enough exposure to European art and decided to travel to other parts of the world for inspiration. I spent four years alternating between working and traveling to countries such as Japan, Morocco, Trinidad and Tobago, and most extensively Brazil. It was this church facade in Sao Paulo that solidified my dedication to make art that showed the competent, the beautiful, the composed and the carefree spirit.
For the moment I live in Toronto updating my portfolio with pieces inspired by travel, beauty,love, work and family.
