Artistic Approach

The explosion in the arts, the wealth of knowledge, and the remarkable impact on humanity provided by the great 19th century Masters carry this artist to excellence. She is inspired by art that enhances beauty, such as the work of Ivan Chichkine and the contemporary artist, Joseph McGurl.

The nature of Quebec offers a multitude of unexplored facets and possesses a visual richness. She uses photographs as well as her own oil and charcoal sketches as a reference when creating her work. In addition, in accordance with tradition, her works are painted on mounted linen to ensure the quality and durability.

"Painting the beauty of nature to offer it to others, this approach leads to an opening of consciousness of my interconnectedness with all life."
