Artist BioProfessional artist Anik Dubaere

Originally from Pincourt, Quebec, I always had an attraction for arts. For ten years simultaneously, I played the accordion and danced classical ballet. As for drawing, I was often told that I had inherited the artistic talent of my paternal grandmother.

When I was a teenager, I participated in several art workshops at Brault and Bouthillier in Montreal. A creative passion then began.

After my studies in Special care counselling at the Sherbrooke’s College, I resumed my artistic process. I explored oil and pastel before attending classes with painter Claire Lantagne. She helped me develop my right brain during my drawing classes and understand the basics of watercolor. Unfortunately, I stopped creating to go to work as an educator. It is only twelve years later, after a final return to Sherbrooke, that I plunged back into painting.

I prefer watercolor, instead of oil, because the medium fascinates me more for its transparency and fluidity. To help me regain confidence in my work, I took classes with Pierre Jeanson, a renowned painter in the Eastern Townships. During his classes, it helped me showcase my talent as a painter. Now I have added acrylic to my artistic palette. It allows me to travel in an additional space, for both the new formats and for my creativity. Throughout my work, I try to transmit my joy while harmonising colors.

So now, get inspired by my work by browsing through my little pleasures!


Artistic approach

At the heart of my creative process that uses different techniques, my artistic work has always had a connection with happiness. As part of my career as a special care counsellor, I realized that the base of psychology, we take for granted, is focused on positive reinforcement. So I decided to that I would transmit joy through my work. Initially, I try to keep the pleasure of painting subjects that inspire me. Then I try to provoke a positive emotion for the viewer, through my subject. Intuitive process is very important in my dynamic approach.

My style is sometimes figurative, when I paint in watercolor and my vibrant colors try to emphasize the beauty of our surroundings. While in acrylic, I escape in a totally abstract world to make room for the spontaneity of the gesture.

Since I paint professionally, I observe more the scenes from my daily life. The nature and color of the sky, which changes with the seasons, inspire me deeply. In my themes, I increasingly use rounded shapes. When I paint, I forget the outside world and let my mood dictate my brushstrokes. Once the work is done, it must, first of all, speak for itself and it must create and allow room for multiple interpretations. But you will notice that the titles I need to create to guide the viewer and support my subjects, all have a positive connotation in my initial pursuit of happiness. My choices of titles want to create, in their own way, music to our ears, as my creations want to be a beauty for the eyes.

Through my work, I hope to provoke a smile, carry people elsewhere or evoke positive emotional memories. Above all, I have a lot of fun creating paintings with joyful or serene accents to bring some magic in the lives of art lovers.
