Our Featured Artists

Native of Trois Rivières (Québec), Thérèse Boisclair studied photography for many years. She spent a long time searching for the “right medium” to explore her artistic talents. She painted in watercolour for over 18 years specializing in painting the French Riviera. The local architecture, the small narrow streets and the scenes of every day life fascinated her. 

Over the last few years, she experimented with acrylics on tissue paper and other exotic papers. She chose the fragility of the tissue paper and the boldness of the acrylics. Her inspiration is the emotion of the moment it will determine the colors that she uses. Her brush is only guided by her imagination.

When talking about her paintings, Boisclair says “This is not what you are looking at that is important but what you see”. She acknowledges that everyone will see something different in each of her paintings.

Her abstracts landscapes have been seen in many exhibitions in Canada, Europe and the United States. We can find her works in private and public collections in many countries. She is a member of several associations in Canada, she lives and works in Ottawa, Canada.
