Born and raised in Montreal, Canada, I grew up playing outdoors and enjoying nature. My parents always encouraged me to be independent, to be creative and different. I didn't have any siblings, and up north, friends were far and few so I had to make due with my own little universe. I guess that's where my career started...
The woods is where I feel myself the most. I feel connected to the plants, to the land, to the sky, to the animals. It's where I find inspiration. It's where I discover the textures and the colors that I want to find in my art. But mostly, it's where I can really appreciate the perfection in the imperfection of the world around me. I'm always amazed at how randomness can be so beautiful...
That's what I want to recreate in my art. The beauty of chance, of the universe, of things beyond our control, like the shape paint does when it drops on the floors.

Acrylic, Latex, Plaster, Stain, Wood Pannel and Fir frame.
A thick mixture of various plasters applied on a stained gallery grade wooden artist board. It is framed in douglas fir, a wood type that grows on my family's forest and that I cut, made planks of and worked into a frame.
Acrylic, latex, styrofoam on board with pine frame.
I made this in artwork in 2019 as part of a geometrically shaped styrofoam forest series. This one was part of my personal collection until now. It reminds of all the sphagnum mosses and lichens I find in the northern forests of Canada. I tried to emulate the softness of these plants as well as wind moving the blades of grass in a prairie.
