In Ellen's Cabin
For a couple of years my niece regularly posed for me in my funky studio space in Ellen’s cabin. The photos I took at the time have provided a rich source of material over the subsequent years, as I paint in my current much more skookum studio. This rendition built on the solid forms and geometries of the pose and setting, which suggested a defined, contained and simplified approach to each component. That pastel coloured weaving insisted on being present, and I’m so glad now that I allowed it to have its way!

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!"
