Marie-Christine Claveau comes from the beautiful region of Saguenay Lac St-Jean, Québec. She grew up watching the tides go in and out of the Bay through the classroom windows. After finishing a bachelor degree in Physical Education with a minor in Visuals Arts in 2001, she moved West. She first landed in Squamish, British-Columbia, where she lived in her van on the side of the Mamquam River. She spent many years exploring the whole province to finally settle on Traditional Tsimshian Territory on a small homestead in Rosswood between the Skeena and the Nass rivers. She paints with acrylic. Her colourful work focus on the beauty of nature. it’s landscapes, flora and fauna.
Sunrises are so humbling, specially when you’re trying to paint them.
