About the Artwork

I have had mixed feelings about painting animals. On the one hand, they are a vital and visually interesting part of “everything that is.” On the other hand, I am wary of “owning” them. Somehow that reluctance got turned around in this painting, because my question was not “How can I put this creature (here, Meles meles, the European badger) in my painting?” but “Who am I as a badger?” It was a journey of discovery as I studied everything I could find about Meles meles, and then imitated the postures I had seen in nocturnal video footage. Fascinating!

Oiseau, AFCA

Argenta, British Columbia

Oiseau lives and paints in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. While she focuses primarily on portraiture and the figure, plein air landscape painting is also an important part of her practice and inspiration.

"In painting as in life, whatever distance you travel just opens up further vistas for exploration. Subtleties, bold statements, complexities of relationships, colour, colour, colour. I wish I could paint forever!"
