Marie-Claude Boucher was born in Charny, Quebec in 1973. Her interest in art began at an early age while drawing with her twin sister, and painting has since become her true passion.
Artist Marie-Claude Boucher obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Art and French Literature from McGill University. While in University, she also studied Latin, Spanish, and Education. Upon graduating from McGill, Boucher briefly pursued a career in teaching, before choosing to devote her time to painting.
Marie-Claude maintains a palette of primary and pure colours. She has developed her distinct style with the use of spontaneous and confident brush strokes: “I am not looking for perfection in the details, but rather simplicity in my settings.” It is in the countryside where she finds her inspiration, often interpreted through welcoming red-roofed houses and characteristic clotheslines. The liveliness in her painting style allows us to appreciate her personal zest for the act of painting, and her colourful approach bears her inimitable signature.
Boucher considers herself a contemporary landscape artist with an expressionist twist. Marie-Claude has been involved with many successful shows in Ontario. She was recently proud to announce that her paintings will soon decorate the Montreal Children’s Hospital. Source
