Behind The Scenes

What goes on behind the scenes when you are an artist, entrepreneur and small business owner? A LOT! But what I love the most is being able to work closely with many other creatives. In this blog, meet some of the creatives I have been fortunate to work with for the official launch of my Skyline apparel. 

These creative individuals are not only responsible for helping with the content creation of the Toronto Skyline apparel, but they are also creatives in their own right - dedicated to their own form of art - photography, video, painting, writing and acting. I am so blessed to work with each of them.



Ruslana is not only a behind the scenes Art Director but she is also an accomplished oil painter and fine artist. For the Skyline apparel launch, she is responsible for the visual style of the photo shoot - directing the layout, including the look and poses of our models. She is a multi-tasker - stepping in to act as a model for the photoshoot as well! Check out some of her beautiful classic impressionist paintings at
