Louise Martineau was born in Quebec in 1952. A lover of beautiful villages, it is above all in the countryside of Charlevoix that she quenches her love for drawing and painting. In oils, his touch is both spontaneous and generous, and his brightly colored compositions reflect the warm nature and dynamism of their interpreter.

Louise Martineau - Exciting getaways
His date and place of birth
Louise Martineau was born in Quebec in 1952. It was in Château-Richer, just opposite Île d'Orléans, that the artist spent her childhood summers, surrounded by nature and tall trees, his lifelong companions.

His education, his career
After completing studies in psychology at Concordia University in Montreal, Louise Martineau chose to return to her hometown. She taught there for several years.

At the end of the 1970s, after several years of pictorial research carried out alone, Louise met artists from the milieu who served as guides to her mastery of her art. This period of study will bear fruit; through his talent, his relentless work and his desire to always go further, the artist quickly established himself in the Quebec artistic milieu. In the early '90s, she held her first solo exhibition as a professional, which coincided with the start of her full-time practice of her art. Since then, the cities of Quebec, Montreal, Edmonton and Victoria have all had the chance to applaud his success. Louise Martineau, painter

His work, his art
As a landscaper, it is above all in nature that Louise Martineau quenches her love for drawing and painting. Moreover, she travels at all times the coast of the St. Lawrence between Quebec and Charlevoix via the island of Orleans to provoke this creative enthusiasm. Subsequently, she draws inspiration from her work carried out outside to produce large formats in the studio.

Very inspired by the rural heritage, Louise Martineau features these pretty country houses, these beautiful estates and these ancestral roads which we bring back the memory of our Sunday walks. Everywhere, tall trees dominate the landscape. In fact, this subject never leaves the inspiration of the artist. Orange maples, majestic oaks, cherry trees and willows are the essential elements of its havens of peace. In fact, the hardwoods are all reminders of a happy youth that the artist celebrates in his works. Finally, the liveliness of the lights and the warmth that emanates from the compositions reflect the strength of character and the dynamism of their interpreter.

In oil, his touch is both spontaneous and generous, accurately translating his love of bright colors. All these elements give his works a refreshing side where contrast rhymes with harmony.

Louise Martineau has been represented by the Au P'tit Bonheur Art Gallery since 1998, exclusively since 2011.
