Lyse Paquette, painter

Lyse Paquette was born in Montreal (Quebec) in 1954.

She has been drawing since a very young age, but it was her mother who introduced her to the world of painting. His innate talents as an artist led him first to study graphic design at Studio Salette in Montreal, and later to drawing at the Saidye Bronfman Center.

Over the past ten years, she has developed a very personal approach; intimate delicacy in small formats and amplitude of gesture on his large canvases, the artist plays with space. Also added to this facet of the artist is duality, that which merges in the powerful play of shadows and the intense luminosity of the colors.
