Nature is the principal source of inspiration of Astrid Denelle. Nature: with all its facets, its changing moods and colours. When Denelle paints, she abandons herself to the movements and colours which emerge freely from the canvas.
Even with a successful career as an actor, Denelle chooses to return to school to complete a certificate in Visual Arts in 1993. In 2004, she obtains a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Université du Québec à Montréal.
Denelle has recently created a series of paintings in which she explores the possibilities offered by grey-scale. The artist believes that whereas colour can come in conflict with the subject, shades of black and white let the subject matter take center stage.
