Diane Tremblay

Born in 1957, I grew up in Chicoutimi surrounded by the love of art. When I was very young, I was introduced to works of art from local painters as Arthur Villeneuve, Rene Gagnon, Carette, J.H. Barette, Barbeau and especially the artist who had the most meaning for me, my mother. Curious by nature, I expressed myself in almost all the mediums stopping at acrylic that I love for its infinite range of possibilities. For over fifteen years, I've devoted myself to teaching art. Through my teaching, I experiment with gestures, techniques and expressive approaches, helping young people to discover themselves and to reveal themselves through visual arts. Then, around the age of forty, I was struck by the desire to produce and not only to help produce. For all these years, I produced very little for myself. I acquired all kinds of experience and at the same time a certain maturity. My soul demanded to be liberated. It became an urgent need, a kind of therapy. I didn't have to look very far to find my pictorial universe since it's within me, very close and asking only to be revealed. My style, even though I don't like to label things, goes from expressionist-symbolism to spiritualism-surrealism . In fact, I would like to paint the atmosphere of human experiences. in short I would call it Spiritualism or Spiritual.
