Lise Ladouceur is a Canadian artist born in Sept-Iles, province of Québec. After graduating in 1986 from the Art & Media Technology program she worked in major advertising companies for nearly 20 years.
Her work as a self-taught digital artist is distinguished by its brilliant use of colour, rich textures, and powerful visual brushstrokes. Each artwork is a multi-layered, intricate composition with various overlapping forms and shapes that give the impression of depth and movement. She is constantly looking for new lighting and brightness techniques to use in her mobile drawing apps. She uses a variety of art techniques, including collage, brushing, editing, and polishing, to create amazing works of art that she then prints on polished acrylic or metal surfaces to give them vivid, luminous colours and enthralling depth.
Her works are in private collections in Canada and she has had exhibitions in Canada, USA, United Kingdom and France.
Artist about her work:
“ As a cell art artist, I just use my cell phone to create. I have the freedom to create and draw anywhere thanks to phone art or cell art, and since technology is constantly developing, I experiment with new methods virtually every day!
While I was at the hospital in room #1104, I started drawing on my mobile out of curiosity, sensitivity, and passion. I started drawing while my mobile was the only object permitted in the room due to my severe sadness, and I simply never stopped! My cell phone serves as my sketchbook, and I usually start my work with a tiny portrait of myself to remind myself how arduous the path was for me and how proud I am to have created a wonderful dynamic piece.
I am gradually beginning to discuss my health problems. Since there are so many misconceptions and judgements around mental illness, it is not always easy, but if my experience may demonstrate a successful treatment for this condition, it is worth sharing.”
Lise Ladouceur has been represented by Gabriel Fine Arts art gallery in London since May 2021.
