Emerging Artist

Skylar Dunk

Selected as this year’s Emerging Artist, Skylar Dunk is studying illustration and printmaking at OCAD University.

“I have a passion for hand-made art and craft, where the process is just as important as the end result. I’ve experimented  with a lot of different mediums, but something that I always come back to is printing with silk screens. Combining my illustrations with this printing process makes a great graphic combination, and helps me simplify my own work into its best version. I’ve also began to work with needle felting, and found that was a great way to give my ideas shape and dimension. Whatever medium I’m working in, I try to be involved in my work every step of the way, from design to printing.
