Technique : acrylic

Born in Lévis (Québec) in 1990.

For many years, art has been a large part of this young, emerging artist's life. During her studies in visual and media arts at CÉGEP in Lévis-Lauzon, she discovered creation was a necessity in her life. She continued to explore different techniques in order to perfect her craft, and in 2014, she obtained a BA in visual arts education from Laval University in Quebec City.

In the winter of 2012, Marie-Lysa received a scholarship from the Kedl Foundation, who grants scholarships to students in the arts who demonstrate higher artistic potential. This opportunity brought her to London for a one month training period at the Slade School of Fine Art. In her workshops she discovered, among other things, the importance of light, and through blending she developed a great sense of colour. After the completion of this course in England, she returned fully resourced and increasingly rooted in her artistic practice.

She was selected to participate in the 2012 Emerging Young Artists Exhibition, held at the Bibliothèque Gabrielle-Roy in Québec, at which she won the Coop Zone prize. In 2014, she won the Moulin la Lorraine Prize at the Marius-Barbeau’s works of art competition.

For Marie-Lysa Lemelin, teaching art classes is an excellent addition to her studio practice, allowing her to structure her ideas and share her knowledge and passion for art.

Marie-Lysa has participated in nearly a dozen solo and collective exhibitions in the Quebec region, including the Galerie des Deux-Ponts in St-Nicolas in 2014, at the Congress Centre and Exhibition in Lévis in 2013, at Cercle in Quebec in 2012, and at the Galerie Louise-Carrier in Lévis in 2010.

"I am inspired by nature and representing its multiple forms. All of my work leans toward abstraction and leaves room for spontaneity in the composition. I sometimes use flowers to balance the explosive atmospheres I create, which provides landmarks in the abstract environments without revealing everything."

"The idea is to always work with my mediums randomly to leave room for surprise and daring gestures to build a fluid and dynamic composition. Through many contrasts of colours, textures and shapes, I try to project a positive energy that actually goes back to the essence of natural beauty that surrounds us."
