Biography of Marti Leroux

I started drawing at a very young age. As a child I could colour and look at art books for hours. Our home was filled with art books such as Rembrandt, Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec and many more. My father and sister are also artists and art was a favourite subject around the house. Growing up I had two passions, music and the visual arts.

I studied classical music at Vanier College. I sang opera during the week and I was a lead singer in a rock band on the weekends. I played a few instruments such as the violin, the flute and a little bit of piano.

Luckily the visual arts was always a big part of my life. I met my husband at a very young age and I felt an art career was better suited to married and family life. So I left music and worked very hard on developing my painting style.

I paint in oil and in mixed media. My artwork is either a fusion of abstract and animal realism or just abstract. Each art piece holds a soulful energy and messages for your heart. My serenity paintings are a doorway into a serene world. A reminder to be in the present moment. A beautiful pause in time.

When I create it’s like a meditation. I loose track of time. I go to the most beautiful place of love and I bring back a little piece of heaven for you.
