When it comes to perfection in art, I am a rebel in that I choose to explore originality, audacity and simplicity. When faced with a blank canvas for the first time I aim for spontaneity to allow each work to progress in its own direction. By allowing my feelings to direct the flow of the work I am able to capture the energy of the moment allowing each work to convey to the viewer a small glimpse of myself.
Marie-Claude has developed her style with the use of spontaneous, wide and loose brush strokes. She maintains a palette of primary and bold colors relying on the use of fluid brush strokes and minimal details to convey her message. This colorful and simplistic approach bears her imitable signature. She is a contemporary landscape artist with an expressionist twist. The rich colors of artists such as Marc-Aurele Fortin and Matisse deeply influence both her palette and her approach to painting.
Marie-Claude Boucher was born in Charny, Quebec in 1973. Her interest in art began at an early age when she could often be found drawing with her sister. She studied Latin, Spanish language and French literature at McGill University, graduating with a degree in Arts and Literature. After a brief teaching career, she made the decision to devote her time to her true passion, painting.
