As a child, I was carried colouring books, crayons and papers everywhere. Having these with me felt like a privilege. My love and attraction for colours and creativity only grew from there. In my native city, Québec, I took art classes and pursued my passion through College, by studying art and obtained a Graphic Art Degree from Laval University. Soon after, I moved to Calgary where new challenges were awaiting.
I took a series of regular classes and workshops with great artists such as Jean Pederson, Mary-Leigh Doyle, Cheryl Peddie, Brian Atyeo, Bob Burridge, Amy Dryer and more….I now paint regularly and avidly.
The subjects of my paintings are diversified and represent the natural world, animals and sometimes everyday objects or scenes painted in my own interpretative and whimsical semi-abstract way. My work reflects happiness, joy and wonderment through design, shapes and colours. I love exploring new ways of expressing my vision of things and the world around us.
I regularly exhibit my work with the Calgary Community Painters Society, the Parkdale Art Club, the Southern Alberta Art Alliance and more recently with the Freeplay group. I have participated in many group shows at the Hillhurst and Sunnyside Community Association from 2009 till 2015. I had two solo exhibitions at Framed on Fifth, a duo show at the Common Crown Brewery and at the Calgary Jubilee Auditorium, in 2018. I was one of the participant at The Art on Ninth Gallery in 2018 and in their Pop Up Edition November 2020.
I had some of my work on display at the Giant Bicycles Cafe in Edmonton, at Euphoria Cafe in Calgary and at the Calgary Fitness Table. I have exhibited in Edmonton at the Galerie CAVA in November 2017 and February 2020.
In 2019, while participating in the Banff Art Centre’s Artist in Residence program, I co-developed a project for a travelling show. It was supposed to be launch in the 2021 spring in Edmonton, at the Galerie Cava, but was postponed for a future date in the 2021 fall or year 2022. The date will be annonced on my website.
