Simek, a visual art student at York, says, “I paint what I’ve seen, felt or thought.” She explores notions of identity, family and a personal life landscape in her paintings and drawings of people and place.

Zacks Gallery is open Monday to Friday 11:30am-4pm in Room 109 Stong College. Admission is free.
