"My works are inspired by a spontaneous painting of landscapes and different themes with deep atmospheres. I do not seek to reproduce nature, but an interpretation of my inner gaze. My works take shape from my imagination, they are instinctive, representational as well as abstract."
Nathalie Frenière was born in Montreal, Canada. From an early age, Frenière expanded the range of her creativity through drawing and music.
She experimented with different forms of expression and found her true voice in visual art. Afterward, she followed master class painting in Montreal and Paris. She studied graphic design and practiced professionally for fifteen years.
Frenière now dedicates herself full-time to painting professionally with work actively exhibited in galleries and museums in Canada, the USA, Brazil and Europe. Her oil paintings exude a quiet, calming atmosphere. She uses a palette knife and thinned oil to create vaporous, enigmatic, abstract vistas. At once representational and abstract, She paints with a serene atmosphere that embraces both worlds.
