A native of Lavaltrie in the Lanaudière region, Julie Melançon was born with an artistic streak in her. Demonstrating a marked interest in painting and drawing from a young age, she studied visual arts at the Cégep de Joliette and graphic design at the Cégep Ahuntsic. She will put her brushes aside while building a family and a career in the school environment.
Life led her to bring out her artist's material and it didn't take much to set the fire. The artistic flame is always present and she likes to paint with acrylic paint, sometimes floral, sometimes abstract or a mixture of both styles. Influenced by different artists via social networks such as: Anna Price and C. Brooke Ring, Julie enjoys painting with strong gestural brushstrokes and original color mixes.
In the first moments of creating a painting, Julie Melançon instinctively pulls colors from her cart to create an inspiring color palette. Once the color palette is chosen, she picks up her brushes and spatulas and lets herself go to the sound of her favorite music.
Often inspired by flowers and colors, her work frequently features elements of the natural world around us. Using strong brush strokes, she likes to create strong contrasts and original color harmonies. In creating her works, the artist wishes to arouse people's emotions and inspire them in the decoration of their homes.
