A lover of music, Martha attends numerous classical concerts where she gleans images to paint. Hence, during one of these symphonic evenings, the flamboyant red hair of a violin player catches her eye and instantly engenders the vision of a scene she could paint, which she immediately starts sketching directly on the concert programme. For this artist, drawing and painting are like a second nature through which she expresses herself and depicts life. To read and discover!

Danielle Tremblay very early made the decision to use an artist’s name, first to dissociate herself from the great number of people bearing the Tremblay name in Quebec and also to manifest her uniqueness as a creator. “I don’t like comparisons, for even if we find commonalities among people or things, nothing is ever exactly the same,” states the artist.
Her family members having been calling her Danou since childhood, it is an obvious choice to which she adjoins her middle name. Hence not entirely fictitious as it is important for her to be herself and maintain her identity. Though it might seem trite at first glance, this simple merge offers us a glimpse of the two poles that characterise her works, namely the high level of imagination they display anchored in a basic style of figurative realism. Danou, is the unbounded wonder of youth, living in a fantasy world and connected to the very heart of creativity. Lynn, is the more formal setting that defines reality, man and his reflections, as well as the connections with matter.

“I became an artist without being aware of it,” Juan Cristobal Pinochet Araya says. Art was such a great part of his life in Québec City. He arrived there from Chile at an early age. His mother was a painter and he got interested in art because he saw her working in her studio and he learned to stay quiet just watching her work because he was so fascinated. Having his mother’s studio at home and seeing her paint there, the brushes in jars and the tables and drawers full of tubes, was just so natural. Even as a youngster he was careful not to touch things because they could be covered in fresh paint. The result is that today, many years later, during his demonstrations, he could be wearing a white shirt and a good jacket and stay pristine.

A man of diverse talents, Normand Hudon initially made his mark with a large segment of the public by ingeniously taking visual gibes at society, notably through cartoons published in a multitude of weeklies, periodicals and dailies such as Le Devoir and La Presse. Alongside these activities, having studied the arts in Montreal and Paris, Hudon also paints. From as early as 1947, his works are regularly exhibited in Quebec, Canada and France. He is also commissioned to create four ceiling panels for the Energy Pavilion at Expo 67. He later publishes a humoristic monthly magazine and founds the Normand-Hudon Academy which provides correspondence courses in drawing techniques.

One day, as children ran out of school, an aspiring artist happened to notice them. Their joy, their lightness of being, their carefree attitude captured her attention and this expression of pure joy became her leitmotiv.
Pauline Paquin‘s canvases are filled with childhood moments of daily life. Her colourful scenes, with their lot of naivety, are pleasing for the eyes and inevitably generate smiles. “Children colour my life,” says the artist whose career spans three decades. It is the essence of the artist to marvel at mere details that are generally overlooked by the masses. She channels her inspiration onto the canvas, highlighting and sealing her final vision in full colours.
