Maggie Bernet, White Rock, BC Canada Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement I was born and raised in the Swiss Alps, a small town called Klosters. I immigrated to Canada/Vancouver in 1980. I am a registered Office Nurse/Lab Technician by trade. I have worked in the medical field most of my adult life and loved every minute of it. I especially enjoyed working as an Insurance Nurse for the last several years. I am a self taught Artist and proud of it.
My journey as an abstract artist began many years ago when I was looking for emotional healing. I had the need to reach inside myself and manipulate my unconscious feelings. Once I was able to achieve that, I created art which allowed me to dance with my psyche. I now have found peace and freedom within. I love strong, bold and vibrant colors, the fall/autumn colors speak to me the most. I am not afraid to make changes and to let the emotion come through. I am an expressionist not an illustrator. My paintings can be a confrontation and may make you look deep within. I hope my art pieces will bring the same joy to you as when I created them. Your job is to clear your conscious mind of thoughts and preconceptions in order to allow yourself to be influenced by what you see. I want my art to brighten the lives and moods of others".
