Marie-Claude was born in Charny, Quebec in 1973. Her interest in art began at an early age and could often be found drawing with her sister. Marie-Claude graduated from McGill University with a degree in Arts and Literature. After a brief teaching career, she decided to devote her time to her true passion, painting.
Marie-Claude has developed her style with the use of spontaneous, wide and loose brush strokes. She maintains a palette of primary and bold colours relying on the use of fluid brush strokes and minimal details to convey her message. Marie-Claude is a contemporary landscape artist with an expressionist twist.
Inspiration comes from many childhood summers spent in small villages of Quebec and Marie-Claude’s travels. Her ability to find joy in every moment defines her personality and at the same time, her art.
“By allowing my feelings to direct the flow of my work, I am able to capture the energy of the moment allowing each work to convey to the viewer a small glimpse of myself.”
