Vibrance, Energy, and Colour: Acrylic Paintings by Nicole St. Pierre



Self-taught artist Nicole St. Pierre was born in Montreal in 1953. She has been painting for over three decades and has exhibited in cities across Canada, including Montreal, Magog, Sherbrooke, Granby, Laval, Outremont and Ottawa, as well as Florida and Massachusetts in the United States. Over the years, St. Pierre has received a number of honours: in 1997 she was awarded a commission to create a fresco in a historic building in Tampe, Arizona, and in 2002 she was selected to represent Canada in a special exhibition presented in Framingham in the Boston area.
Nicole draws her inspiration from everyday life, from the people, plants, animals and objects around her. While she is particularly well known for her female nudes, circus artists, musicians and vivid still-lifes, her allegorical animals are presently making their way onto a growing number of canvases. St. Pierre’s rich and colourful palette favours primary and secondary colours punctuated with contrasting blacks and whites, and her various means of texturing add visual interest and depth to her work.
Nicole St-Pierre’s paintings are part of private collections around the world.
