A Springtime Escape

A Springtime Escape illustrates how alive the City of Brampton becomes in the arrival of spring. Coming out of a cold winter, a young girl is immersed in vibrant colours, the warmth and glow of the sun, freshly bloomed flowers and a fluttering butterfly. The scene is set outside of a local school where the artist often spent most of her time during the spring and summer months as a young kid. The illustration explores the feeling of finding solace and renewal amidst a busy city.
