"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination" -Jimmy Dean
My name is Bernarda Avila, I was born in 1996 in Quito, Ecuador. Ever since I was a little girl I have always admired art, specially drawing. Through out my life I have lived in different places, this allowed me to develop a unique point of view that is reflected in my artwork. When I realized that I was able to transmit through my designs more than words could express I decided to follow an artistic path. It was a huge accomplishment for me to realize that something that I enjoy as much as creating art could eventually become my career. I am still figuring out my path and exploring all the options that graphic design offers to expand my skills and knowledge as much as possible, but in the meantime I will continue creating art and enjoying this field.
I am currently studying at George Brown College the Art and Design Foundation Program. I decided to initiate my artistic path here because I wasn't sure what specific field of design was the right for me. As today I am interested in graphic design as my career. My aspirations are continue to study and become a professional where my passion is my way of living.
I create art to express, to evoque feelings, emotions, where there is no need to speak, where the visual surround my senses and my mind flies far away, where there is no time or space.
When I develop a piece or art I always start by looking at everyday things from a different perspective, an angle, a texture, a color, something that is not visible at first sight and in that moment I start my journey.
