Marie-Hélène Auclair

Name: Marie-Hélène Auclair, PSA
URL: http://mhauclair.com/
Bio: Marie-Hélène Auclair worked as a dance teacher for about ten years before fulfilling her early ambitions to be an artist. She defines herself as a self-taught artist, and worked in other media before settling on pastel. She has won numerous prizes over the last ten years for her paintings, including the Pastel Journal in 2007 (where she had a feature article in December 2004). She has participated in group and solo exhibitions and she has been featured in Pratique des Arts on at least three occasions. She was also included in the 2006 North Light publication Pure Color – Best of Pastel.
Marie-Hélène is a signature member of the Pastel Society of America, the Pastel Society of Canada, the Pastel Society of Eastern Canada, and a member of the Canadian Institute of Portrait Artists. Her past experience as a teacher of the dance has contributed to her success as a teacher of pastel.

À St-Benoit de Mirabel au Québec, au détour du rang de la Fresnière, on y retrouve la maître pastelliste Marie Hélène Auclair, habitée d'une grande sensibilité, reconnue pour son style unique et son oeuvre d'un réalisme imposant. "Depuis toujours, peindre est pour moi une passion et un immense plaisir. C'est la façon dont mes sentiments les plus profonds s'expriment..." dit l'artiste qui, à travers les portraits et les natures mortes, fait ressortir les dimensions et subtilités de la vie.Portraits d'enfants, de vieux parents ou de fruits à l'air amusant, le jeu des couleurs et des ombres, l'effet de profondeur et la touche d'un coeur d'enfant, l'artiste peint avec un réalisme saisissant. Des expositions New-Yorkaises aux livres et magazines d'art américain et français, les oeuvres de Marie Hélène Auclair ne laissent personne indifférent. Le monde en pastel, une aventure multicolore d'une pureté à s'y méprendre.
