Painting of a large house
France Jodoin, "Meanwhile the Sun Squints," Oil on Linen, 60x60”

Canadian-based artist France Jodoin is an impressionist known for her dreamlike maritime scenes and unique European Romanticism-inspired style. Through the use of muted tones, the imagery appears as though the viewer is seeing her work through a fine mist or a slight fog.

Water is an important piece in Jodoin’s work and appears in all of her paintings, even the cityscapes and floral still lives. Intuitive and instinctive, her paintings evoke a simpler time with a slower pace.

More from the Lily Pad | West:

Jodoin’s work is in private and public collections including the Sherbrooke Museum of Fine Arts, Loto-Quebec and Cirque du Soleil. Jodoin lives and works in a small town nestled in the forests of Southern Quebec.

“Nothing I paint is real. I like to say the buildings, places and people are like actors without the script. I leave the rest to the imagination of the viewer. I paint to suggest ideas only.” – France Jodoin
