Paul Cadieux From Canada
I am a son, husband of 38 years, father, grandfather, uncle to over 100 nieces and nephews, self taught artist, poet, song writer and long distance cyclist. I started painting as a teenager but put it all on hold to raise a family which was, and still is the most important thing in my life. I started painting a variety of subjects including landscapes, lifescapes (paintings depicting everyday life) and the occasional, just for fun painting many styles and subjects all in an impressionistic style. In 2009, a knowledgeable curator suggested I pick a subject that which would make me stand apart from other artists and settle into one style, at least for public consumption. I chose florals and garden scenes. Simple subject matter but with enough detail to keep challenge me.
