Aurora Kruk is a Realism Portraitist commissioned by both private clients and the Toronto film industry, for which she is also a First Assistant Art Director. In the past three years, she has designed and executed featured pieces for shows such as the Emmy Award-nominated The Umbrella Academy (seasons 1 and 2), Flatliners, and Guillermo Del Toro’s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.


Born into a family of artists and entrepreneurs in the heart of downtown Toronto, Aurora’s intense interest in visual art began in early childhood and was further entrenched during time spent living and travelling throughout Europe as her mother pursued a degree in Fine Arts. Aurora graduated at the top of her class from OCAD University with a Bachelor of Design in Illustration.
