What leads her to paint primarily is the feeling of well-being and freedom. «I am a contemplative person! » she says. «The sky inspires and guides me to more or less abstract landscapes. Dreaming beyond the image of what our eyes cannot see. Texture is the basis of all my paintings. I then applied acrylic that quickly allows me to pass to oil painting if the heart tells me, which is perfect for my impulsive nature».
Acrylic and oil painting.
Louise Gingras grows on the Plateau Mont-Royal where she discovered her passion for the arts and drawing. Self-taught at the beginning, she was introduced to oil painting than explores the possibilities and qualities associated with acrylic paint. The artist was trained in Fine Arts at CEGEP du Vieux-Montréal and then worked as a graphic designer for a few years.
