I am a self-taught artist who works with oil paint on canvas and ballpoint pen on paper. My love of arts has lead me to acquire a degree in Cinematography from the University of Montreal.

Over the last 10 years I have developed and fine-tuned my style in order to convey more depth and emotion. I have practiced with all kinds of mediums, including but not limited to watercolor, graphite, acrylic and ink. After a period of exploration, my interest fell on oil paint and ballpoint pen art, which to me are the ideal ways for self-expression.

My black and white ballpoint pen drawings are centered on animals and small creatures displayed in a unique and imaginary settings, to emphasize their vulnerability as well as their solid connection to nature. As for my oil paintings, I fluctuate between still-life and landscapes to create colorful and vibrant work influenced by contemporary impressionism. Both styles, either in color or composition, are heavily entwined in reality and fantasy.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Imagination meets natural reality. I am inspired by nature where most of my subjects come from. They come adorned with an array of dream-like quality. I capture this with the use of either oil paint on canvas or ballpoint pen on paper.

My oil paintings are infused with a sense of reverie through the use of vibrant colors and vivid contrasts. My ballpoint pen drawings carry a fantastical dimension through the combination of minute details and insertions of creative forms and whimsical arrangements.

My intention is to add an imaginative dimension to what we see around us, so that we can look at nature, animals and the whole world with a new sense of wonder.
