Elsa Boisjoly

Freedom is my muse. She opens hers wings wide

and flies over life's beauty ."

Elsa Boisjoly has been actively practicing her visual art for more than 20 years. She has taken part in many group and solo exhibitions in Canada, USA and Europe. Her art is sometimes motivated by her emotional connection to the environment which can be overpowering  and magnificent at times, or simply come from everyday life experiences.  “My artistic projects are usually born from an emotional triggering event.”  Her creative work is often linked to her concerns for a healthy environment an d its footprint as well as her great fascination with the mysteries and manifestations of life in nature.     Acrylic is her medium of choice with an approach to using various binders, mortars and fluids which become an intrinsic part of her work.  Elsa’s paintings are created by her perceptions and memories while using shaded  colours.  She offers a reproduction of this reality, a different vision on the canvas and our perception of the image.
