We fully blossom when we aren't afraid to go toward the roots, the darkest parts of ourselves, for healing. When we are in the mother's womb it is pitch black, it is not until we come out into the light do we realize that we are not separate from the darkness. That darkness doesn't go away, it is where we must retreat in order to become, fuller, truer versions of ourselves. Do not fear the darkness, you are made up of it.

Meet Tori Swanson
Hi, I'm Tori! I received my certificate in Fine Arts at Langara College, in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I initially focused on the female form in line drawings. I remember attending my first drawing class and being in AWE of the bravery of the nude and curvaceous women posing so confidently in front of a class of students. Get to know me!
All artworks are original and signed by myself.
The artwork will be carefully packed and shipped once purchased. Most commonly, these are the following shipping options available:
Rolled up in a shipping tube (Cheapest)
Shipped in a cardboard box + Bubble Wrap (potential risk of damage in transport, but typically safe and cheaper than a crate).
Shipped in a Wooden Crate (Safest)
All canvases are not stretched for ease of shipping. If you would like your canvas stretched and mounted you may select that in the shipping option.
Shipping fluctuates depending on the size and weight of the piece. At checkout, you۪'re asked to pick a shipping option, which is an estimate. If there is a difference in price, I will reach out personally to discuss any additional payments of partial refund if need be.
If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with me through the contact page or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to packing your orders!

This Artist Wants You to Take Off Your Clothes and Love Your Body
Tori Swanson draws people naked for a living. As an artist, her primary focus is nude portraits. Being sketched completely naked can be a vulnerable experience, but Tori’s goal is to make the experience a liberating one. “I want people to look at themselves differently. I want people to not be afraid to explore who they are, and I want people to be open to trying new things and being less judgemental with themselves.”
