“I am an impressionistic oil and pastel landscape artist who paints ‘en plein air’ and in my studio from reference photos of places I have been and from my imagination. I am the founder of the Ottawa Plein Air Painters (OPAP) where I lead a group of artists through the experience of plein air painting during our 4 seasons. My goal is to share with you what I feel through pastel and through oil paint when I look at the chaotic organization of Nature. My challenge is to use the right combination of colours: the push, pull and vibration of competing colours, the harmony of others and the balance between warm and cool colours. I paint ‘the feeling’ of the scene to spark a memory, a desire or a sense of peace.”

Congratulations to Julie! Two of her pieces have been selected for the 11th Annual Members Only Online Exhibition of the Pastel Artists of Canada (PAC). These two works—”Lavender Fields Provence” and “French Villa By The Lavender Field”—are on display / for sale at Rothwell Gallery. The winners will be announced on December 1st! We wish Julie great luck in this very prestigious exhibition.
