My greatest achievements so far is being comfortable with myself and finding what I am passionate about, I love my job and love where art has taken me.

I had the privilege to interview the talented artist Sabrina Kitchen. She draws her inspiration from traveling and her environment. Main inspirations being Parliament Hill, bridges, architecture, sunsets, water, reflections and nature. Her work is colorful and vibrant and will be featured during RAW Ottawa CONNECT:

Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do
I was born and raised in Ottawa and currently live in the West end of the city with my soon to be husband and four babies. For the past 5 years I have been working at Westboro Flooring & Decor as a Design Consultant specialising in flooring and window coverings. In my spare time my happy place is my loft where I play music and paint.  I also enjoy gardening, exercise and spending time with family and friends.  I’m big on experiences and always take the opportunity to try something new or travel and explore a new place.

Who has inspired you in your life and why?
My mother because she has shown me how to be a strong, independent woman.
