“Art is my oxygen. The process of creation is essential for my happiness and well-being.” – Hélène DeSerres

Hélène DeSerres – Star Of The Week.

“Underwater Discoveries,” Acrylic, 30″x40″ by Hélène DeSerres

WAS THERE A PIVOTAL MOMENT WHEN YOU DECIDED TO FOLLOW YOUR PATH AS AN ARTIST?

“It was always my childhood dream when would spend hours in my coloring books and later draw with my Prismacolor crayons; I would daydream and wonder what it would be like to be a “real” artist. Then, finally, in my fifties, when “my job as a mother” was over, I could explore various facets of creating art.”
 
 CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK FOR US?

“These past few years, I have been exploring abstract and semi-abstract work. I love exploring colors, textures, and the effects they create.”
 
 WHAT DOES YOUR WORK AIM TO SAY?

“It is mostly my present state of mind. I am an intuitive artist. Capture the feelings of the moment, or images from past trips.”

“Celestial Path,” Mix media 30″x40″ by Hélène DeSerres – Star Of The Week

HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR WORK FITS WITHIN SOCIETY IN OUR PRESENT TIMES?

“Well, it is very much influenced by the various global crises. So, the shifts in nature have a direct effect on me emotionally.”

WHEN LOOKING BACK, WHAT ARTWORKS COME TO MINDA THAT MOST RELATE TO YOUR LIFE STORY?

“It could be more apparent for me to relate my creativity to my life story. As I mentioned earlier, I was in my 50s when I became a full-time artist. It followed the path of my professional life, always looking for new experiences. So, I did watercolor workshops, sculptures in Mexico and Montreal, jewelry that became wear mini sculptures, and all the possibilities of mixed media based on acrylic.”

“My Red Bird,” Acrylic 30x40in by Hélène DeSerres – Star Of The Week

CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS?

“I usually start covering the white canvas with a few colors. Then I explore various possibilities with colors that inspire me at that moment. After that, it is trial and error. Shapes appear and disappear. It is always a process of discovery, then finding balance, and of course, satisfaction. It sometimes works in a few hours; other times, it may take days or weeks before I see the suitable composition.”

WHAT VISUAL REFERENCES DO YOU DRAW UPON IN YOUR WORK?

“These past months, nature, my environment, images from photos taken on recent trip.”

ANY UPCOMING PROJECTS?

“I want to go back to drawing from nature—simple line drawings. Also, to explore watercolor and the fun of working on textured paper as I did many years ago.”
