Hello, I’m Aila! I am a third-year illustration student at AUArts and am very happy to be participating in my second Show + Sale. I come from a small town in northern British Columbia, which means that my work often portrays the nature I grew up alongside, whether that be trees, the Pacific Ocean, mountains, or animals. A touch of whimsy often makes its way into my pieces, and I also like to bring a narrative element to my art due to my background in English literature. Much of my artistic inspiration derives from books, poetry, film, music, and my own travels. I enjoy observing the world around me and I am always seeking to build my artistic skill set in a way that allows me to combine my love of storytelling with my love of drawing and painting.
