Statement

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

“My totem is the humming bird.” says Marie-Paule. “I look for the essence of a subject and bring up what is in my mind its dominant feature, at times bright and fanciful, other times peaceful and contemplative.”
 

BIOGRAPHY

Marie-Paule is a mostly self-taught artist, living in Canada. Although she first studied directing, acting, costume design, stage photography, as well as ballet and modern dance at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff (Wales), her true passion is for the visual arts, or “images”. She uses photography, acrylics and mixed media to create contemporary works of art, as well as digital art, inspired by nature, textures or ideas. Her paintings belong to private collections in the United Kingdom, France, Mexico and Canada.
 

THEMES AND STYLE

A keen observer, Marie-Paule recalls an impression or an emotion to explore a theme that may constitute the next work of art. When painting, or creating  digital artwork, she likes to explore geometrical designs, composition and juxtaposition of colours to enhance a visual dominance in the picture. It can be the texture of an old wall, the reflection of water or sky, the silhouette of a man-made object or an element of nature against an abstract or semi-abstract background.
