Born and raised in Tokyo, immigrated to Canada in 1992. I am not the typical artist whose childhood was filled with a fascination towards drawing and painting. In 2014, I decided to dedicate myself to becoming a full-time assistant of my autistic daughter at Victoria College of Art. There, I was exposed to a serious fine art environment for the first time and was fortunate to make the acquaintance of a 82-year-old drawing and oil painting master, who profoundly influenced me until having moved to Edmonton in the summer, 2015.
My new lifelong passion is especially focused on creating human faces with this truly forgiving and beautifully mixable media. Please visit me on the 105 street closure next to Chapters. Website- www.jtoyfineart.com Facebook - Jun Toyama Instagram - @jtoyfineart Twitter - @jtoyfineart
