Born on December 27, 1956, in Chicoutimi, Quebec, Anne Savard has been practicing her art, contemporary and figurative, for 16 years. She has always been interested in creative manual work: sewing, macramé, weaving, basketry, crafts, etc.
Then one day, she discovered painting in the workshops of Mrs. Louise Gagné. Over the years, a real passion developed. Since then, painting has never ceased to inspire and animate her.
Since her first workshops, she naturally paints flowers. She has a real passion for them. For her, no one can remain indifferent in front of so much beauty, extravagance, colors, scents and diversities. Consequently, they become her favorite subject. Of course, she sometimes moves away from them, but she always returns to this inexhaustible source of inspiration.
Retired from teaching for a few years, her art allows her to maintain a balance and to take up challenges that enrich and animate her. Moreover, she likes her passion to help others, which is why she offers a painting each year for social causes or to educational institutions for their fundraising.
This time has allowed her to participate in various symposiums, exhibitions and events from which she has emerged more animated than ever to continue and evolve her art.
She likes her work to be contemporary, unique, colorful, lively, textured and current. For many years, oil was her preferred medium. Then, mixed techniques led her to use acrylics, which allows the use of a wide range of textured mediums, thus offering more singularity to her paintings. Her favorite colors are often bright and complementary. His visual presentations evolve on abstract and often textured backgrounds. Although her paintings remain essentially realistic, these different mediums allow her a certain freedom of interpretation of her subjects.
She is always on the lookout for new materials or techniques that will help her to particularize her paintings. She is currently experimenting with stencils, alcohol ink, liquid acrylic, image transfer, pencils and pastels. Her favorite medium is canvas, but she also paints on fabric and lately on yupo paper. She loves to create custom works based on specific directions. These works often allow her to explore other avenues.
She draws her inspiration from travels, garden visits, videos, symposiums, galleries, artists, etc. She paints for pleasure and for pleasure! We feel this happiness in her paintings that delight the eye, move the heart, and make us dream...
