Alicia Wishart, Barrie, Ontario Member Since December 2008 Artist Statement Alicia Wishart was born on January 22, 1977 in London, Ontario. She lives a silly life surrounding herself with cartoon characters such as Garfield & Bugs Bunny. Everyone thought she would grow out of it but they were sadly mistaken.
She has always had animals around by way of house pets and even had 12 aquariums full of fish set up in her room at one point! She found them to be her favourite subject when doing art whether it was cartooning or painting so it only seemed natural to merge the colours of her favourite cartoons and painting animals when she decided to pursue an artists life.
When she's not painting, Alicia enjoys spending time reading biographical books, watching movies, making stupid sock creatures, going to zoos and rocking out to Motley Crue and Coldplay (who says you have to pick one genre!) She is married to her husband Steve and has 4 kids, Claude (cat) Bailey & Molly (mini dachshunds) and Beans (Jack Russel Terrier). She also has a fish, Manson the second.
