This whole blog thing is new for me. I am not used to divulge my thoughts nor my pastimes on the web. I hate Facebook, Twitter and all of it. I still use a pen to write thoughts and whatever else. So got inspired to publish illustrations from different people. Now it’s relatively new, but hopefully soon, it will be filled with lots of stuff. My main thing is people. I learnt how to draw from the street. I began as a portrait artist in the streets of Old Montreal in the early 80’s. After a few years working with portraiture, I then traveled to Israel, Greece, Cyprus, and Italy earning my ride from street portraiture. It was later on that I pursued a BFA at Concordia University where I learnt how to undo what I had already known much to my dismay. I then went on to pursue a Master of Arts in the same place only to learn that art and passion aren’t earned at University.
Right now I am teaching at the College and University level in Graphic Arts while still pursuing creation in many forms.
I love to create and love the female form as well as portraits. However I love city scenes with alleys and back streets. Now that the weather has warmed, I will be capturing the alluring streets of Montreal. If you have a chance, please visit my site directly from here!
ciao, ciao, Liliane
