My name is Veronique and I create whimsical graphic artworks and vivid modern paintings. With a background in graphic arts, you often find visual elements, patterns, and typography in my work. I moved to the United States 11 years ago when I fell in love with a wonderful romantic sailor. I am pursuing my creative dreams of being a professional artist and spend a good portion of my time creating art, teaching, and sharing my artistic wisdom and living an everyday fairy tale with my husband.
I was born and raised in Quebec, Canada and I studied graphic design at the UQAM in Montreal, Canada. While working as a college professor and graphic designer I always kept a paintbrush near. I had a great career in education and worked with wonderful people doing stuff I was passionate about. My love for painting never faded, and finally, I decided I wanted to pursue a career as an independent artist.
I use art to record memories and stories, documenting all facets of life, from far-flung travels to the relatable every day. I am creating rough sketches at first after I am reading about the town or visiting some wonderful places. I am usually getting inspired by what I read or the feeling I have when I am in the town-city. After I create the sketches, I am painting on wood with acrylic. I am mixing ink also in the acrylic to have colored fluidity. I take a lot of time with each of my pieces, work hard, and don’t rush through them. I didn’t realize how important it was to sit with your art for a while, take a step back and think about it.
