Jeanine Brito on preserving memories and feelings Dear Seekers

    • Society & Culture

Today, I’m joined by Germany-born, Toronto-based Jeanine Brito, who I first connected with through Instagram many years ago when she was still working on Sophomore, a magazine that she created in her early twenties with a group of good friends. Even though Jeanine had been working as a designer in a various of companies over the years- from an interactive designer in a tech start-up, to a graphic designer at Umbra, and eventually to the creative lead at Global Mail’s Content Studio, I always knew there was an artist in her. To be fair, I’m sure she knew that too. But it wasn’t until the pandemic that Jeanine finally re-connected with her inner artist and was able to put more attention on her artistic practice and pursuit. For many artists in any discipline, finding their voices and artistic vocabulary might take years. But for Jeanine, it took one pandemic. Being forced to stay in a confined space, in a way, has evoked an if-not-now-then-when moment. With some very clear signs and guidances from the universe, Jeanine recently took a leap of faith to take her art practice full-time.
