Alice Briesmaster - Painting and Photography

About Alice Briesmaster
 
I am rediscovering my creative side by renewing my interests in both painting and photography.
 
I am originally from the United States, and in 1974 crossed the border to Canada and settled in Toronto. In 2000 I moved downtown from the suburbs to the wonderful, vibrant, historic St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood, not far from Lake Ontario. Since retirement in 2009, after many years at a busy accounting job, I am devoting my time to a variety of artistic pursuits. 
 
Through the years I have taken various art classes in drawing and  painting, and when I retired I purchased my first digital camera, a Panasonic Lumix.  Currently I am seriously exploring both mediums, with recent painting classes in acrylics and oils at Avenue Road Arts School and George Brown College Fine Arts Program.  I have also attended several classes at Henry's School of Imaging, and plan to take more classes in photography in future. 
 
I  am excited about this creative new chapter of my life!
