 The artist is Montreal born and resident of Laval.

Thibault Goodrow first undertook her visual arts studies in high school and then for two years as part of her teaching diploma at McGill University. With a strong passion for the arts, her continuing education studies led her to the Teaching of the Arts Certificate from the University of Sherbrooke. To refine her skills, she attended the Académie des Beaux-Arts de Laval, completing courses in Linear Drawing, Values, Portrait, the Study of Colours (in pastel) and the study of The Masters. Since then, various workshops have become a source of inspiration. Her work is generally figurative, although impressionism leaves its mark with subjects varying greatly, frequently including portrait work.

Reine is a member of the Quartier des Arts du Cheval Blanc, ArtPlus  and Rose-Art. She is a signature member of the Pastel Society of Eastern Canada, President from 2011 to 2015 and presently acts as Exhibition Chair for the annual juried show, Les Pastellistes.

  Artist’s Statement__________________________________

 Creating a new painting reveals my creative potential, as well as my short comings. Each time comes the excitement of the challenge and of the self-discovery.  I ponder how to transmit to the viewer what  moves me about the subject. I then  search how I can make it striking and unique.

My university studies in Fine Arts had dealt mainly in abstraction. Although I had drawn all my life, I lacked technique and felt ill equipped to render certain representational subjects. Thankfully, live model drawing had been an important component of my classes so that when I began to paint seriously I was able to benefit from that training.

When I later returned to study the Fine Arts, realism naturally dominated my subject choices, concentrating mainly on still life, people and portraits.

In time I began seeking to combine my love for abstraction and for free gestural movement with my more Cartesian style. This remains a constant personal objective.

Be it working with pastels (sticks of pure pigments of shimmering colours) or with acrylic paints (which can look like oil paint but dries more quickly), I have always enjoyed spontaneity and liked the feeling of working briskly! (Sometimes the best results are achieved doing a quick study!)

However, parts of the process can be slow. I spend a great deal of time choosing the subject, working out the best composition with thumbnail sketches or pondering my next strokes. Through trial and error I have learned to take the time to be certain before pushing “merrily along”. To quote Bill Hosner: “Never work faster than you can think.”

Other moments are purely magical. While working I am sometimes overtaken by strong feelings of anticipation, at times experiencing, for brief moments, a total loss self-awareness, engulfed in the creative process with only my inspiration to guide me.

Paintings also tend to have a life of their own and are filled with surprises and unexpected results. Nonetheless, regardless of how a painting evolves, learning is inherent to the creative process. It transforms me each time and in it I find joy.
