Serene, from Toronto, Canada, is a self-taught acrylic painter specializing in surreal fantasy worlds. Her style of painting tends to involve whimsical tones in a fairy tale dreamscape, where physical rules are defied. She enjoys focusing her subject on escape, such deserting a hard reality or slipping into a childhood memory. Living in a world of ever-changing emotions and perspectives that can be difficult to articulate, she finds comfort in the idea of freedom in another universe where an explanation is not necessary.

She hopes viewers can find their own escape and craft their own backstory in each painting.
