Pouvoir partager ces moments de création est une joie pure! ...
Born in Montreal, primary and secondary school in Brussels, Belgium, college and professional schools in Quebec.
Autodidact and with good entrepreneurial skills, Nathalie Morin Rousseau has experimented mixed techniques and used a number of artistic media before concentrating on acrylic.
Initially, Nathalie developed an original technique for painting sceneries on wood for ‘’Studio Pomme et Soleil’’. Her painted furniture, as well as her paintings on canvas, have been exhibited and sold in Canada, Europe and the USA.
After a sabbatical period of artistic research and experimentation, she decided to go back to canvas painting and to create works inspired by her own personal life experiences.
‘’The human soul is my preferred subject of inspiration’’
Inspired by the ability and strength of human beings in the face of changing circumstances of their lives, Nathalie’s works are an abstract and vibrant reflexion on the daily miracles of the human being caught in a dominating universe which he fails to understand.
Here abstraction and a form of surrealism sometimes meet a touch of impressionism. See how the vivid colors of her paintings transmit movement and how the texture itself reveals forms. Nathalie often uses her brush and spatula in a spiral stroke and she always let her heart and instinct move her hand.
Her artistic search touches subjects such as the surpassing of one’s limits, the desire for freedom and the will to express oneself by any mean.
Her community involvement offers children new means of communication to express themselves through the artistic media.
