Marie-Manon Corbeil is an abstract expressionist artist based in Calgary, Canada. Born in French-speaking Montréal, Quebec, Marie began painting merely as a hobby in her mid-30s. As each canvas became a release for raw emotions and feelings, she recognized that painting was in her soul, so she dedicated years of study at the Calgary School of Art.
She has devoted her craft to vivid acrylic paints, rich in texture and vibrant in tone, but also evocative and expressive. Marie uses large brushes, finger strokes, marks and scribblings to breathe life into each painting. What emerges is a powerful visual display of vulnerability.
Always developing her skills and pushing her limits, Marie-Manon is progressing from local Canadian artist to achieving recognition at an intercontinental level by studying with renowned international instructors. For the past six years, she has been participating in workshops with Jean Pederson, a Canadian, internationally known artist and online classes, workshop and mentorship program with the renamed Robert Burridge from California.
Never forgetting her roots, Marie-Manon participates in numerous art exhibitions in and around her home city. Her works have been sold to many private collectors and demand for commissioned custom pieces continues to escalate, with her fine art pieces being shipped to homes across Canada and the US, and some travelling to London and Dubai. Her large works are in particular demand.
She is committed to bringing in your home with her masterpieces that can be mysterious with vaporous designs or soothing in neutral tones the feelings you are looking for in an artwork.
Marie-Manon is passionate about giving back to her community and therefore regularly donates her fine arts to her church and to local charities, with support dedicated helping children affected with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
I am an artist that constantly challenged myself. I create balance and equilibrium in my work and master the flow of the paint. My paintings are free, honest, and colourful, also leaving the art with emotional content. I am very influenced by my feelings and I incorporate them into my artworks. Sometimes, I even compare these feelings that influenced my paintings to my bright and dark side.
You can recognize my work from my brush strokes that I create using very long brushes, the juxtaposition of colours, hidden words and different tones and values.
I try with every finished work to leave a mystery and something personal about myself. My artwork speaks not only for me but for the people who are long-time gone.
