Through my work I attempt to realign myselfand reorder today’s sometimes chaotic pace of life.
I draw and paint in response to the overwhelming need to express the questions, concernsand wonders aroused in me by the mystery of life.
I am interested in transitional periods,trauma and recovery, loss and rebirth.
Through my art, I strive to go beyond one’s appearance, to the energy that connects and animates us all. I want to translate the dignity of the person, regardless of age or physical traits.
Through my work I attempt to realign myself and reorder today’s sometimes chaotic pace of life. Painting and drawing people is a way to understand others as well as a search to discover myself.
— Léonard Beaulne,
"She transforms fluctuating and unstable sense impressions into semantic contents
fixing them so that we can reproduce them in memory and preserve them.
dimensions of the past, present and future are thus open to us and become accessible."
