Sheryl Siddiqui is a Canadian contemporary abstract artist that relies almost entirely on abstract lines, shapes and marks, rather than literal iconography.  Her work includes acrylic paintings and smaller mixed media artworks. Art is a source of constant self-expression for her, and an imperative part of overall happiness in life.  She creates art very spontaneously and intuitively on canvas, wood panels and paper working on multiple paintings at once, building layers with a variety of brush sizes and tools. Buttery heavy bodied paint with molding paste in addition to, high viscosity paint is dripped, poured, and splattered on to her work surface. “I incorporate an element of risk taking to my art process. Boredom is never an issue for me, and I am never afraid to completely rework my art if I feel a new inspiration.”  Her materials include acrylic paint, pencil, charcoal pencil, marker, wax crayons, found and recycled materials, water colour pencils, pastel, and oil stick.
