Artist’s Statement

I spent my childhood in the Lower Laurentians, Quebec. I was exposed to a rich and diverse culture which
has influenced my outlook in life. My curious nature led me to study science and to spend many years in a
variety of scientific careers. I have always believed that one should dive into new experiences and either you
learn to swim or you sink. It is this philosophy that led me in 2004 to pursue my art. Over the last few years,
I have experimented with silk and developed my own techniques for creating my images. I enjoy travelling,
especially to less well known destinations, and these experiences bring inspiration for my work. I am largely
a self-taught artist and hope to continue exploring fiber for many years to come.

My art is greatly influenced by my curious nature and my vivid imagination. I always want to find a universe
within a particle and the unseen details that lie beneath the surface. I am fascinated by the unknown and
unexplored. The tactile and textural nature of silk has drawn me to this medium. My completed art - IT IS
WHAT IT IS – open to interpretation by the viewer and I expect somewhat different from my own viewpoint.
