Maurice Dionne is a full-time artist living in Ottawa, Canada. After a 30+ year career in science, he has been successful in transitioning to his lifelong passion. Today he is fully immersed in his local art scene and participates in several arts organizations. In fact, he is currently serving as President of the Foyer Gallery Artists association, a 50-member art gallery cooperative. He works primarily in water-based media and his work can be seen in many local and international venues. Maurice Dionne has been developing his artistic skills throughout his life, always seeking courses and workshops that would fit in his busy schedule. He has taken many courses with local, internationally recognized artists as well as following closely those which are masters in their fields. He knew that one day he would transition fully to his art. It will soon be a decade since then, and his journey continues.
