Esther (Allen) Slevinsky is a painter currently exploring everything from landscape, still life, figurative painting, and portraiture. She grew up in Kincardine, Ontario: a small town on Lake Huron with a Pipe Band that boasts their own tartan. From an early age, Esther developed an obsessive passion for paint and always knew she wanted to pursue art as a career.
Esther received her BDes with a major in Illustration from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2006. For almost two decades, she completed large scale commercial and residential mural projects, but has decided to trade drywall for canvas as her surface of choice.
Esther lives and works in Waterloo, Ontario with her sidekick Mark, her two young boys who are willing to pose for paintings as long as they are compensated, and her cat/lapwarmer Maeby.
