Johanne tessier

Born in Montréal in 1963, I spent my childhood and my adolescence in the Montérégie area where I studied art.

When I was little, I dreamed of becoming a painter... I inherited from my father his artistic talent, his love for painting and colour. By force of circumstance, I became a sort of autodidact painter.

I love everything that is out of the ordinary, so I transform everything that I see according to my interpretation.

In 2006, I was initiated to oil painting, medium still unknown to me up to that time. It is mainly through trial and error that my imprint was revealed. From this new experience has resulted a passion that has never stopped growing.

Since that day, I have been using a mixed technique with great spontaneity to create paintings that have lots of volume and texture, in an explosion of colours and pigments.

My themes vary between the animal, vegetal and fantastic worlds.
