Meet our January artist, Tessa Troch from Sault Ste. Marie:
1. How did you come up with the idea for this drawing that is included inside the calendar.
Aside for my appreciation for music, I am also fascinated with nature and slightly obsessed with anything disney-related. And so, I was inspired to create this drawing while listening to the music from one of my favourite disney films: Pocahontas.
2. Why do you like drawing/painting or taking pictures?
For me personally, drawing and taking pictures is one way for me to relieve stress.
3. How did you feel when you heard your artwork was selected for the TGIF Calendar?
I was extremely happy when asked to contribute my drawing to the 10-Year Look Back at Art in the TGIF Calendar.
4. How has the Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario assisted you and/or your family?
The Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus Association of Ontario has assisted me tremendously throughout my 18 years of life. This association has provided me and my family with valuable information pertaining to my disability as well as an abundance of support.
