Can you imagine colour in a desert? Audrée Marsolais' art is full of colour, and often inspired by Nature. Based in Ras Al Khaimah, Marsolais grew up in Canada. She graduated in Graphic Design from the Academy of Arts and Technology of Montreal in 2000, according to her website. She writes: "I tell stories in a language of layers — painted and stamped marks and patterns, vivid colors, contrasting black areas and lots of drips of fluid paint. I experiment with acrylics, ink, texture mediums and pastels to create abstract, busy backgrounds. I surrender to the process and let the painting unfold naturally, committing only to the next move and allowing the final result to reveal itself."
