Hi there! My name is Charissa Olano and I am a Brampton-based traditional and digital artist.

I am currently studying in the Creative Industries program at Ryerson University in Toronto.

My subject matter includes portraits, people, personified figures, and surreal dream-like landscapes. I like to experiment and challenge myself to try new mediums and visual techniques in my artworks.

I am comfortable working in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, and I enjoy creating motion graphics in Adobe After Effects and Flash. 

During my spare time, I like browsing through my favourite social medias like YouTube, Instagram, and Reddit. I enjoy listening to music and watching movies in theatre or on Netflix. 
For those long commutes to school, I love reading Inspector Montalbano Mystery books by the Italian author Andrea Camilleri.
