Johanne Lepage, is a self-taught painter living in Bromont, Quebec, Canada.
Born in Montreal in 1961, she has been fond of do-it-yourself and crafts of all kinds since her early childhood. In her youth, painting, embossed leather, enamels on copper, ceramics, knitting, crochet, and more, occupied her free time.
In adulthood, Johanne will continue her life on the south shore of Montreal, then establish her penates in the Eastern Townships, Lac Brome, Orford and now Bromont.
Having always wanted to touch visual arts, it is finally in 1992 that Johanne takes her first steps. She will follow several courses, workshops, seminars and especially will make a multitude of experiences during the years.
After having experimented with several mediums, including oil, pastel, painting on silk, watercolor, etc. ... It is finally
with the fluid acrylic that she fell in love with, and which is since
My Artistic approach :
Blue, synonymous with escape, represents my state of mind when I paint. To escape into an imaginary world to create works of art with colors that are sometimes soft, sometimes bright, in which, without exception, blue is found!
Blue, the color of water and the sea, reminds me of snorkeling with fish and coral. I draw my inspiration from these underwater wonders.
Blue also means good luck for some people, so it is with this philosophy that I create each of my works, they become real lucky charms.
Inspired by the corals, my work is spontaneous, the composition and the forms are born from the fusion of the colors according to the superposition between them, the location where they are, as well as the displacement obtained by the effect of the wind or the manual movement given on these.
This intuitive art, allows the viewer to enter a versatile and unique universe where its interpretation provides a range of emotions and sensations. The interpretation often differs from one person to another and according to the side where the work is exposed. A single creation therefore provides several paintings!
I wish to continue to refine my technique in order to always improve my version of the ocean floor, and to offer a lucky charm in the colors of my imaginary world.
An imaginary world of colors at my fingertips ...
