Marie-Paule Thorn, Ottawa Member Since August 2009 Artist Statement I am a well-traveled, mostly self-taught artist, living in Canada. I began my artistic career training in directing and acting, costume design, stage photography, ballet and modern dance at the Sherman Theatre in Cardiff (Wales). However, my real passion is for the visual arts. I see my surrounding world in images, changing across time and places. I use digital photography, acrylics and mixed media.
Currently, my paintings tend towards contemporary and semi-abstract, while I treat the subject of my photos through various perspectives and filters. Some of my works belong to private collections in the United Kingdom, France, Mexico and Canada.
