Artist Name

JOLIC

Hometown: Quebec

Based in: Grenville-sur-la-Rouge

JOLIC is an award-winning artist with an international reputation. Her creative process is simple, with brushstrokes, spatulas and sometimes the palm of her hand, on canvases treated in black, she instinctively follows her inspiration, where her emotions guide her.
I strive for an overall balance where colours compromise on one side and are balanced out by forms on the other. My artistic approach consists of balancing, contrasting, finding focal points and leaving quiet areas where the eyes can rest. I move from one canvas to the next with passion and excitement to bring them to a phase I call “detachment.” When I reach that point, it is time for me to let go. Only then can I reach for a new canvas and feel the euphoria of creation once again.
