Josee was born in Montreal, Quebec. She is a life-long painter who discovered drawing as a young child. She began the study of oils in her 20’s. Now living in the Ottawa-Outaouais region, she is closer to breathtaking surroundings. Her passion for nature is seen in her work as she transforms landscape into stunning painting with bold colors.
Through her professional education in science, she understands the chemistry of colors and she is truly passionate about mixing unique hues to create the atmosphere that she wants to represent in her paintings. From taking her own pictures of nature or plein air painting session when she walks and hikes, she conveys her raw emotions on every single canvas with every single brushstroke. Between light and shadows, life is revealed through vivid colors and shapes. The flexibility and depth of color and texture of oil paint allows her to pay tribute to this beauty with thick and impasto modern impressionistic brush strokes dancing on each canvas.
She participated in several art shows, Symposium and group plein air painting with different organizations.
