My name is Aiden Lee. I am an abstract painter, teacher and human advocate. I was born with multiple diagnoses; Autism, ADHD, Anxiety.
One of the challenges I faced made it difficult to communicate and express my thoughts and feelings with those around me.
That is when I found art.
For the first time, I was able to express myself fully and it changed my life. I use different styles and mediums to create bright, bold colours, with a blend of different textures which inspire the mind, body and soul.

The power of art
In 2017, I started an initiative aimed at volunteering to teach and inspire 150 students for Canada’s sesquicentennial. Since then ‘Art From the Heart’ has grown to huge leaps and bounds!
I have brought the power of art to over 4200 students all over Ontario and have expanded my classes to a virtual setting to include communities worldwide.
I teach everyone to take their emotions and throw them onto the canvas. Art encourages communication and healing and I get to see just how much impact it has on people's lives every single day.
