Svetlana McCaw

I am a Serbian born artist and designer currently living in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. Born in the city of Belgrade, I grew up sketching furniture and admiring images in interior design magazines. I studied Wood Processing/ Furniture Manufacturing at University of Belgrade, Faculty of Forestry. I graduated with Honors and worked as a Teaching Assistant for a while. I emigrated to Canada in 2000 and studied Interior Design at the International Academy of Design in Toronto. I am currently working as a furniture estimator and design support in Georgetown.
In 2017 I started painting as I wanted to make a surprise birthday gift for my husband. That’s when I discovered my new passion for visual arts. I found great happiness in expressing myself visually and I am always on the lookout for new painting techniques as I evolve as an artist.
