About the artist
Suzette Castro is a Toronto visual artist concentrating on POP CULTURE IDOLS and CUSTOM PET PORTRAITS. Her style stems from the world of pop art, capturing a wide range of emotions, in both her human and animal portraits.
Born and raised in Toronto, ON, she calls Mimico home. Artistic creativity has always been a major part of her life. A career graphic designer until 2012, after a layoff, she rediscovered her passion for painting portraits on canvas. In the past she experimented with oils, water colour, pen and ink and pastels, before opting for acrylics on canvas as her medium of choice. From her usual smooth brush strokes to her latest expressive realism using palette knives.
Her Rockstar Collection was painted while listening to the music of her subject matter, which she says gets her in the zone - energized, focused and inspired. While Suzette’s love of animals and attention to detail work as she captures their essence and personality making her pet portraits come to life on canvas.
