In my life, there are three major things that are absolutely necessary to my survival. At least, my sanity. Art, Books and Music. Of course, my everyday life is fulfilled with my wonderful husband and beautiful step children and cat. But without these three aspects, even without one, I could not be the person I am. And, therefore, I couldn't enjoy anything else. I live hearing music like it's the soundtrack of my existence.I see beautiful things everywhere I look. That's what's amazing with art, it's in anything and everything. I need books to escape, to dream, to learn. To feed my mind or to let it relax.
Growing up in Québec city ,life was busy and full of surprises. Yet, safe and fulfilling. My first language is French and I think it's one of the most beautiful languages in the world. Obviously, I'm biased. I was lucky enough to have very dedicated parents who let me try anything I wanted to. From Judo (a disaster), to figure skating and ballet. Then, my heart settled on violin and I was hooked. My love for music only grew from there. But, above all, my love for drawing has been deeply rooted in my early years, as I could spend many afternoons drawing with my mother. When we didn't know what to do, we would draw. She is a wonderful artist herself. Thanks mama!
I've never known what I wanted to do with my life. I've loved too many things to settle on just one. But, ever since I've started doing the pet portraits, my love for drawing has grown even more. With inspirations from other artists, I've finally found that doing realistic drawings of animals was driving me forward and making me dream of a future where I could live fully as an artist.
Thank you for visiting my website,
Looking forward to drawing your pets!
