Mixed media semi-abstract paintings
I grew up in France but have been living in Canada for the last 12 years, I am currently located in North Vancouver and work from a studio on Pemberton Avenue.
I have two passions:
- Painting the effects of light with watercolor on paper through portraits and cityscapes ( http://www.watercolorpainting.ca/ and http://www.yupopaperpainting.com )
- Building complex textures and edges with acrylics and mixed media on canvas. I go back and forth between those two painting techniques, they feed of and influence each other.
The style of my mixed media paintings can be described as contemporary semi abstract, a positive energy to add to your living space.
Since 2002 I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and obtained the Associate Membership status in 2010. I am also a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society and San Diego Watercolor Society since 2010.
My paintings have been exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions in Canada and in the United States.
I had a feature article in the August 2009 issue of Watercolor Artist magazine, have been published in a few books including the next book of the Splash series,( North Light Books' hardbound showcase of the best in contemporary watercolors) Splash 11 New directions: the Best of Watercolor, Splash 12 Celebrating Artistic vision , and Splash 15 Alternative Approaches, and the book, Best of Watermedia Worldwide (Kennedy publishing). I will also be part of Splash 15 Alternative Approaches, still in edit.
