Terrap'Art > Sylvie Tremblay-Laforest

Self-taught.
 
Born in Grand Falls, New Brunswick.
 
Her interest for art began when she was just a child. Early in life, she was drawn to art. She liked drawing, collage, modelling clay and sewing. She never thought having enough talent to be an artist. One day, she met this artist who told her: "You don’t need to be perfect in drawing to be able to paint; you just need to try it and have faith in yourself."
 
So it is in the 1980s that she started oil painting and she loved it. She pursued taking classes and workshops with different local and renowned artists.
 
Later, she tried other mediums such as drawing, ink, watercolour, pastel and acrylic. She experimented with clay which permitted her to learn a lot of modeling techniques.
 
The last years were mostly dedicated to acrylic and texture. Her work has been exhibited at the SNB Art Gallery in Grand Falls, at the Rendez-Vous des Artistes in St-Leonard, NB, the Symposium d’arts visuels du Nord-Ouest and more recently she took part in the annual event called Mindscapes 2015. Her work was exhibited at the NB Museum in Saint John, NB for the month of October 2015.
 
She is inspired by what is important to her: children, flowers and landscapes.
