Lajoie Chantal, "Sybiline"

Search terms: paintings, oil, figurative, portrait, landscape, fantasy

"The artist brush is a magic wand that travelled trough time. The painter is only a dreamer."

About the Artist:

Sybiline was born in Shawinigan, Quebec in 1976. She studied fine art at Laval University, Quebec. Becoming very much fascinated by the work of great masters, she undertook the study of ancient techniques. Sybiline specializes in the art of portraits and is very much inspired by certain literary and symbolic worlds. She thinks that creation is an ordeal facing as much dreams as reality.

Artist's Statement

"I like to analyse people. That is how I discovered a great passion for portraits. I sit apart and watch them go by. I observe their attitude, their hair, their eyes, and develop a kind of complicity that bears beyond this world. When I paint a portrait, I leave impressions on the canvas and compose so that it has to breathe. It has to live by itself and transmit an important message: What I saw in it is in reality all that I didn't see."
