About The Artist

Jacintha Krish

Welcome to my website.

Art has been an ever present part of my life. I have always held a pencil or brush in my hand while I lived and travelled in different countries and focused on different careers through many decades. My education in fine art began in art school in my younger years years and continued at Algonquin University and at the Ottawa  School Of Art. While working full time in office management and accounting, I mainained in parallel a career as an artist and art instructor. Painting makes me whole, and is an intrinsic part of who I am.

My paintings capture the world around me in vivid splashes of colour. I let my spirit soar with my paints as I paint the world around me, what I see, whatever stirs my soul. After a career in business spanning many decades (yes, both sides of the coin!) living and working in Ottawa, Calgary, China and Europe I am currently back home in Toronto immersed in painting full time. My travels and experiences in different countries greatly influence my artwork.

To keep abreast with art and its ever-burgeoning world, I am an active participant throughout the year in many art shows and exhibitions as well as teaching art courses and workshops in art organizations in Toronto and Oakville. On invitation, I hold drawing and painting demonstrations in various  cultural and art groups in Toronto. I participate in juried as well as solo shows both here in Toronto and in Ottawa, where my husband and I lived for several years while raising our family. Back home in Toronto now,  I belong to a few select art groups in and around the GTA and find it enormously stimulating and deeply satisfying to be a part of the cultural art mosaic of this vibrant city.

As a member of Saatchi Art International and Artfinder, I currently sell my work in Canada, USA., UK and Asia.
