Phresha - Artist Bio

Phresha was born with a crayon in her hand. This mischievous colourful tigress that grew up in Toronto, currently resides on the Canadian west coast in sunny Vancouver BC. Her work can be described as vibrant and playful organic flows with seductive female forms and whimsical undertones. Sultry, mysterious vixens are often found frolicking with feral kittens and other wild creatures. Currently, Phresha is focusing on gallery shows, commission work and sampling all the delicious sushi down the coast.

“As a visual artist, I am fascinated by the female form, as the embodiment of Mother Nature and her many manifestations. She is the divine goddess, an ethereal warrior, the seductress and the mistress among her many incarnations. A creature of mysterious beauty and allure, she frolicks with whimsical creatures in the planes of my imagination. “
