Artist of the Month

Fran Corriveau

Q: What is your artistic medium?
A: I usually oil paint on gessobord

Q: What is your background?
A: I have a degree in nursing, one in healthcare management and also a Masters in Business Administration. I have NO background in art. I had never drawn or painted until the spring of 2013.

Q: How long have you been doing this type of art?
A: I started immediately painting landscapes and seascapes in oil in 2013. I also began as a plein air painter but I have evolved to having a studio and doing more complex projects as well.

Q: What inspire you and how did you get started?
A: I was looking to develop a neural pathway by learning something new to help my brain recover from an injury. I was quite ill at the time and had a hart time learning, a very hard time finding enough energy to even show up to learn and having the motivation to do all this was a real issue that I needed to overcome. Fortunately, I met many women who helped me show up for lessons, shared their knowledge, carried my stuff into the field and encouraged me to keep trying. I am so indebted to those women. I can't tell you how grateful I am.

Q: Is there anything else you would like people who view your art to know?
A: I would like people who see my art to know the breadth of my gratitude for all that's been given to me. Even though I have lost a lot, I have tried to concentrate on what I have left and what I can do with that. The world is ceaselessly beautiful in all its different aspects and I'm lucky enough to see it with my new artist's vision. 

Q: Is any of your art for sale?
A: All art that I am posting will be fore sale. I can be reached at fccorriveau@gmail.com
