Alcove now carries a variety of art cards and prints featuring paintings by Round Woman Studios.
“When I paint, I usually begin by creating a sky and then the land and then I wait and watch the scene until, almost like dreaming, images begin to form and characters appear from somewhere in my memory or imagination. I am probably more surprised and delighted than anyone when I see how the paintings develop. Other times, I begin with a character, usually women or children, and I paint until I have created a life around the character.
Growing up in Lachine Quebec, along the St. Lawrence river, I spent my childhood as the last of five children, in almost complete freedom and joy. I believe these carefree days allowed me to develop an imagination that has carried me through life. I had parents that allowed messes and experiments. I grew up on stories told by my grandmother of her childhood in the prairies and found myself overwhelmed by the beauty of these lands when I saw my first wheat field. My heart is tied forever to little houses, strong women and their daily tasks and the sheer vitality of children.”
