Passionate about colors, I have been painting for 21 years, always at the present moment.
The courses and workshops that I followed have led me to a pleasure of painting with the shapes
and colors that surrounds us. I started with figurative art, then an abstract essay, then stained glass
painting, and then tree research. My portfolio are the colors of my soul that I see, that I imagine,
the colors of the soul of a tree, of a landscape etc ...
The trees are what fascinates me the most, with their different shape and color according to the
seasons. I have developed a personal and unique technique to create shapes and colors in my trees.
My trees are my signature. I have been painting a series on trees for eight years.
I still paint the figurative on large and small acrylic or mixed formats very colorful and full
of light, It represents my vision of pleasant and alive landscapes.
Each painting has a story for me with its challenge. Painting for me is a way of sharing
my passion and my soul's vision of colors and light.
I have participated over the years in several solo, group and 120 symposia exhibitions
in Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick.
