Stephanie Della Porta Toronto, Ontario
“I believe we are living masterpieces coloured with energy.
Everything in the universe, when stripped down to the very core is made up of this positive and negative energy. For me, the energetic movement of paint across canvas captures this; the way it flows and moves much like the ebb and flow of life. Painting is the only time I really feel I have control. If it doesn't turn out the way I want it to, then I change it. Same as life, really. We are all given this beautiful blank canvas from birth and we choose what colours will fill our days.
Like an artist, we have the same power to change the final image.
A blank canvas presents infinite possibilities and reminds me to be in the present moment.
Every colour, every stroke, every detail, every decision is mine alone.
The power to create or destroy.
To let go or hold on.
This is my ultimate expression of freedom.”
Stephanie is a multi-disciplinary creative whose passion for life has flowed into various endeavours allowing her to create a life as beautiful as the dreams that dance in her imagination.
As a certified 200 hour Registered Yoga Teacher, yoga has taught her to be the best version of herself and to live in the moment, presently, not before or later and as an artist this benefits her on a creative level because creativity is maximized when living in the moment. She hopes to continually inspire people to live a colourful, vibrant lifestyle where they can be the best versions of themselves.
When she is not in her studio smeared with paint, you will find her behind the lens, exploring nature's beautiful terrain, or teaching yoga.
