Valérie Lortie grew up in Grondines, a small village in the county of Portneuf, in the Quebec region. Already very young, she has a great interest in the arts. At 13, she began her first oil painting lessons. After graduating from high school, she studied Fine Arts at Cégep de Ste-Foy which led her to paint in acrylics and made a stint in Graphic Communication at Laval University. Since then, she has devoted her time to her passion, painting. She has participated in several exhibitions, art auctions, art galleries have opened their doors to her and now her paintings are found in several private collections in Quebec, Canada, the United States and Europe.
Guided by her imagination, Valérie has been painting in acrylic for several years fanciful landscapes where the tree is very often the main subject of her works. Always eager to invent authentic, colorful images with a double identity, we have seen worlds emerge on her canvases, each more original than the other by their compositions, their colors and their stylized elements. Now his approach is becoming more conceptual. Through his works, we discover more dynamic trees, a more mature intuitive technique that brings depth and a very lively effect to his paintings. His greatest motivation: to reveal a nature that has something to tell!
