Dominique Desmeules

Artistic approach

Speaking about her work, Desmeules is quoted as saying, "my artistic approach is inspired by floral subjects such as flower beds, flower gardens, or even a simple bouquet". Both an avid gardener and photographer, she takes photos of plant life throughout the year and uses them later for inspiration in her painted works.
Given her education, Desmeules is proficient with both colour theory and advanced painting techniques. Her work is perhaps best recognized for its unique contrast of watercolour and impasto. Taken together, they create a unique visual effect which is sure to capture the imagination of viewers.
