Painting on silk works Magog, Québec, Canada

has been a painter on silk since 1979. After an internship in France, she quickly became passionate about this technique. All her subjects come to her from a memory, or an atmosphere she remembers. This marvelous and imaginary world that inhabits her, her attraction to poetry and her desire to translate it into painting, guide her gesture on silk. "Art is a state of mind. "(Chagall). Her creative and spontaneous gestures developed gradually like the act of writing. Over the years, her hand has freed her of all tension to evolve on silk as fluidly as a skater. She finds infinite shapes, lines and colors. A line drawn inspires the next. A single color triggers a mix. The exploration of simultaneous, vibrant, living colors leads to the appropriation of space.
