I am a painter and doctor based in Quebec, Canada. My work is a celebration of resilience and transformation in the face of the challenges that my body and soul experience every day. I have suffered from a severe form of arthritis since 2018 and have monocular vision, as a consequence of an autoimmune disease. My arthritis affects mostly my pelvis, cervical spine, and lumbar spine. As a result, I often struggle with completing simple tasks, such as walking as well as moving my neck and arms. I have learned how to cherish these simple things, which one may take for granted, and I do my best to remain positive and inspire other warriors who live with chronic illnesses.
Painting is my way of transcending physical suffering and entering a realm of peace. I work relentlessly, with iron determination; sometimes twelve to eighteen hours a day. I do not depict what the eye can see. Rather, I tap into the depths of the invisible, pouring my emotions on the canvas for others to feel. Art allows me to conquer the boundaries of tangible reality, communicate with my autistic son beyond the confines of verbal expression, and reach the souls of those who come in touch with it. It is my wish to inspire others in overcoming hardships and light up a glimmer of hope in their hearts.
