Isabelle resides with her husband, two cats and several chickens in the countryside. As a self-taught artist, she draws much inspiration from the beautiful gardens she has created there and from her love of nature. Always conscious of the environment and recycling, her furniture pieces take on a second life that range from the sere to the whimsical.
She has worked in all media but prefers painting in acrylic. She creates beauty on canvas, furniture, jewellery, home accessories and walls. She adds beauty to her gardens with her garden art, with sculpture and whimsy. Her wok is show and sold in Toronto and in numbers stores and galleries in Ontario.
Isabelle's professional background includes twenty years as a freelance prop person and background artist for commercial photography in Toronto. In 2000, she decided to retire from this work in order to devote more of her time to creating personal works of art from her home studio.
