Trained under a master painter, as artists used to do in 19th century Europe, Marie-Eve Lauzier studied classical oil painting full time for three years. Marie-Eve loves to paint all subjects from still life to portrait. However, her favourite subject is the figure. Because she is a mother of a toddler, her daughter Pénélope and husband Manuel are an endless source of inspiration.
Marie-Eve was trained to paint in a tight rendered way. Lately she was greatly influenced by the work of John Singer Sargent. She likes to use the paint to describe forms. Looking at the work of Sargent she discovered that painting is a different language than drawing. It was an epiphany!
Presently, she is at a tipping point in her artistic path. She wants to paint something else, to do more than copying what is seen. Marie-Eve considers herself to be more of a story teller, using paint instead of words. With this idea in mind, she is studying all kinds of different artistic movements, incorporating them in her work, bringing her creativity and her art somewhere new.
