Pernelle Robidoux searches for her creative voice.
Since I can remember, I have always loved the arts. Music, drawing, and painting are a passion of mine.
In 2013 I participated in an on-line painting class that ignited my creative spark. I have taken many on-line art classes since then, and I am now trying to put it all together and find my creative voice through practice.
Making art is a way for me to express myself and find some ‘Me’ time which doesn’t always come easy being a mom of four.
At the beginning of 2020, I started an Instagram account which really helped me to create that time and connect with other artists of all levels for support and inspiration. I added a few time lapse videos on my page which show my process. I really enjoy making these quick videos and sharing them to inspire others to create.
Embracing artistic freedom to explore.
I have a passion for portraits; they intrigue me and have so much to say. The expressive eyes especially have a story to tell.
When you look at one of my portraits from up-close, you can see the different layers and marks that make up the piece which I can never get enough of. Sometimes it’s also knowing when to stop and not overwork a piece that is tricky. However, each decision is part of the learning process and growing as an artist.
Most of all, I love imperfections, colour, textures, expressive marks, and lines.
Different techniques inspire me: whether it is dry brushing, scribbles, one-line drawings, digital drawing, thick or thin application of paints and layering to create unique colors, all contribute to my works of self-expression. Always exploring, I am finding my creative voice, one brushstroke or line at a time.
I use a variety of mediums like acrylic paints, watercolour pencils, oil pastels, coloured pencils, pens, graphite, inks and anything that makes a mark.
This creative journey of mine is a work in progress, and eventually, I hope to find my voice and become a full time working artist.
