Born in Québec City, Christine Nadeau lives in Côte-de-Beaupré. She has an educational background in visual arts and in psychology. Her favourite subjects are nature, maritime landscapes and life in relation with nature.
A good command of composition and drawing techniques, acquired during her training in visual arts, gives her work an organized structure where she can express herself freely and harmoniously. Her approach is based alternatively on passion and structure. Her art is characterized by a profusion of broad brushstrokes that exist side by side and get organized in a final structure. Her work, like a mosaic, reaches its conclusion at the very final stage and can best be appreciated from a distance.
Acrylic has been for many years a medium that serves her well.
Member of the Institut des arts figuratifs (Figurative Art Institute), she participates in major exhibitions and her works can be found in many art galleries in Québec and in Canada. In 2009, she exhibits in Brittany and in the north of Provence. In 2010, she exhibits at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, as part of the Canadian Delegation.
As her legacy, the artist wishes to leave a subjective and emotional expression of her perception and she strives to be a sensitive witness, able to convey the awsome beauty of her country.
