Doris Savard

Born in the province of Quebec, Canada she lives and works in Montreal.

Savard studied Fine art at Bishop’s University  and has been focusing on her art on a full time basis since 1999.

Being represented by various galleries throughout Canada and the United States, she is a well established Canadian artist with a growing reputation in Europe and the United States. Her art is collected around the world both in private and public collections. One of her paintings was selected in a group exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris in 2007.

She is a member of the RAAV in Quebec.

Like Matisse who has always been my greatest inspiration, I choose to send positive vibes through my work. 
I want my art to be a refreshing, positive pause from all the negativity we see and hear everywhere.

Colours are what drives me, I love them! I use a lot of red in my work, red is life itself, energy. Even though I am constantly concerned with composition and harmony, energy, spontaneity, sensuality and passion are emotions, which are omnipresent in my paintings. 

Between the agony and the ecstasy of the creative process I give it my all. I paint from within which allows me to fully express my own true colours.
