Morning freshness, warmth of the sun, scents of flora … summer walks in her flower garden are inspiring for an artist who paints bright and colorful abstract landscape scenes.
Dominique Desmeules likes to create colorful and harmonious compositions that give free rein to your personal interpretation. The artist takes advantage of the watercolor aspect of diluted acrylic which generates <<accidental>> and unexpected shapes that she decides or not to keep on the canvas. She then enlivens the entire composition with the addition of floral motifs, opaque acrylic solids and different forms of collages (Japanese papers, dried leaves, prints of old cut-out artwork)
She explores different series of works composed of subjects such as sculpted and stylized flowerpots, imaginary landscapes and abstract works.
Born in Chicoutimi, on the banks of the magnificent Saguenay River, Dominique Desmeules was greatly influenced during her classical studies by an art professor, Jean-Guy Barbeau, which led her to pursue artistic studies in graphic design at the University of Quebec in Montreal. For a few years, she worked as a graphic designer on her own, before directing her career to the travel industry as manager of a travel agency where she had multiple opportunities to travel around the world. In the early 1990s, her passion for art and painting grew so strong that she decided to devote much more effort to her art while continuing to work in the field of travel. In 2007, she devoted herself entirely to painting and began her artistic career by entering several art galleries in Canada.
For ten years, she has done international art fairs (Europe, Asia, USA, South America and Australia), which allows her to exhibit in a gallery in Seoul for two solo exhibitions, to be chosen by a patron of Singapore for his personal collection and to exhibit in a few galleries in Asia.
Today, while continuing to paint her original subject, the floral, she is quietly interested in abstract art in a logical continuation of her artistic approach and new pictorial challenges.
