Annie grew up in Quebec, Canada, and spent her adult life between Montreal, Amsterdam, Paris and Munich. She is currently based in beautiful south Germany where she has been living for the past 8 years.
She built a career working in the creative visual branch of the high end fashion industry, in leadership positions. Her love for making art has been a life-long passion, and recently she decided to start devoting her time and energy entirely to it.
“My attendance to art classes in Canada, USA and Europe over the years, has contributed to developing my personal approach and perspective. With my experiences in the interior design of retail stores, I have developed an eye for details, harmony, and balance and I am deeply passionate about creating pieces that will resonate with people and hopefully create emotions.”
Through expressive and textural work, she sometimes uses found materials collected around the world and carefully chosen to form a balance between the underlying and the exposed.
Her intensive process involves multiple layers, where she dives in an exploration of shapes, lines, surfaces, balance and textures and uses a restricted palette to create harmony.
“Completely detached from an original image or subject, my work is characterized by the spontaneity in the movements and by responding to the painting as it evolves. I do not wish to search for motifs, but only experience and feelings. My work process is not subject to rigid rules and just follows the way of the subconscious, working in a flow state, where everything and everyone around me disappears, I am inside the painting.
As an artist, I wish to create a visual dialog. I believe that Art is about sharing and giving a little about who we are. It is about expressing feelings and thoughts that can be interpreted differently from each person, leading the viewer into their own emotions.
I am hoping that my artwork will become part of one’s life, as I gave a small part of my own.
I hope you will enjoy my work as much as I love creating it. "
