Paulette Melanson

Born and raised in rural New Brunswick, Paulette moved to Nova Scotia, which allowed her to fulfill her lifelong dream to learn more about her Acadian heritage and to attend courses at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.

Not working with pre-determined themes or titles –  she finds this limits her creative relationship with the work – she unconsciously experiments with the medium for extended periods of time until she finds meaning in the layers of paint.
At that point the painting comes to life and themes emerge.  Her art is about the forces of nature, the fragility of life and the connectivity of all things.

Paulette has degrees in biology and education.  In 2011, she decided to pursue her art practice full time from her studio in Lunenburg.
