Art reminds me that I can choose to focus on beauty, and that creating beautiful paintings brings joy to other people.
My life’s journey is taking me down a path of artistic expression. I stepped on the path in 1995 when, for the first time since leaving high school, I took a drawing class at the Visual Arts Centre in Westmount, Québec. In that first class, I felt the release of inner tension, giving way to a rare moment of personal freedom of expression, never before experienced!
Since 1995, I’ve travelled through several art classes, visited many artists’ studios, become a member of art associations and I have participated in several exhibitions.
My preferred medium is pastel. I’ve always said that pastel has chosen me. The beauty of the subjects I paint is best captured through the brilliance and versatility of dry pastels. I’m able to bring forth tonal variation, light and shadow and contrast between colours in a way that I’ve not been able to do with other media.
From time to time I offer my paintings for auctions for charities and fund raising events. Please feel free to contact me on my Facebook page for more information.
