Lucie Bilodeau

Born in Montreal, Canada, Lucie Bilodeau recently moved back to her native country after living in the United States for 28 years. As a fourteen-year-old, she studied at Mission: Renaissance School in Montreal, where she learned traditional fine art skills and studied the masters: Rembrandt, Monet, Manet, Cézanne, Fantin Latour, and others.   “Since many of us have a busy and often stressful life, it is important for me to bring the calming and rejuvenating effect of nature into people’s lives through my artwork,” Bilodeau says. “Nature’s beauty is an endless source of inspiration for the creation of my artwork.”   Bilodeau’s creativity is inspired by trips to Montana, a photo safari in Africa, visits to zoos, butterfly farms, nature in her backyard, and time spent with her two cats. New England and Canada are often inspirations for her landscape and seascape paintings. Bilodeau’s fantasy and spiritual paintings come from her vibrant imagination and the beauty of her models, which are often relatives and friends.

“I hope that my artwork contributes to the world I envision,” Bilodeau says. “I stand for a world without wars. A world where honest people can prosper and flourish. Where we care, love and respect each other, as well as the other life forms on this planet. I want us to live in harmony with nature.”   Her works can be found in corporations and private collections around the globe, including England, France, Russia, Germany, Japan, Australia, United States, and Canada.
