My Bio

Sandrine Pelissier

I grew up in France but have been living in Canada for the last 12 years, I am currently located in North Vancouver and work from a studio on Pemberton Avenue.

I have two passions:

-   Painting the effects of light with watercolor on paper through portraits and cityscapes

( http://www.watercolorpainting.ca/ and http://www.yupopaperpainting.com/ )

-   Building complex textures and edges with acrylics and mixed media on canvas (http://www.mixed-media-paintings.com)

I go back and forth between those two painting techniques, they feed of and influence each other.



Since 2002 I am an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and obtained the Associate Membership status in 2010. I am also a signature member of the Northwest Watercolor Society and San Diego Watercolor Society since 2010.

My paintings have been exhibited in numerous juried exhibitions in Canada and in the United States. I had a feature article in the August 2009 issue of Watercolor Artist magazine, have been published in a few books including the next book of the Splash series,( North Light Books’ hardbound showcase of the best in contemporary watercolors) Splash 11 New directions: the Best of Watercolor, Splash 12 Celebrating Artistic vision , and the book, Best of Watermedia Worldwide (Kennedy publishing). I will also be part of Splash 13 Alternative Approaches, still in edit.

    For those of you that are in the Vancouver area, there will be an exhibition at the Diane Farris gallery, I am very exited to have 3 paintings exhibited there (thanks to my participation in Red Bubble and Artist Daily !) :

    Twitter/Art+Social Media 
    Exhibition: April 1 – May 1, 2010

    Opening Reception: Thursday, April 1, 6 – 8 pm

    Diane Farris Gallery is pleased to present Twitter/Art+Social Media, a juried exhibition of work by artists using social media for inspiration, production and presentation of their work. The exhibition concept evolved from an original idea by Mia Johnson who has a PhD on the emergence of the Internet as a vehicle for artists and has been responsible for the gallery’s website since 2004.

    As an early adopter of the Internet, Diane Farris Gallery has been interested in its possibilities since the creation of the gallery website in 1996, when less than 1% of the world population was online. Through Twitter/Art+Social Media, the gallery examines how social media is affecting the practice of artists who use it to share feedback and promote their artwork, organize shows and produce art collaboratively.

    With 80 – 100 artworks by over 40 artists from across Canada and abroad, Twitter/Art+Social Media showcases a broad spectrum of influences of social media. While some artists draw their subject matter or medium from social media, others are working in more traditional forms and using social media to promote and display their work. The result is an exhibition that brings together works as diverse as painting, photography, video and sound to show how the artist’s practices are shifting.

    The exhibition will be accompanied by a forum on art and social media on Diane Farris Gallery’s newly launched blog, www.dianefarrisgallery.com/blog. The blog will also feature various web-based artworks through out the duration of the exhibition. The gallery will use the blog, Facebook and Twitter to announce performances and events in and around the gallery.
