Renee Michaud’s enchanting compositions entrance and enrapture. Her lions, horses, hawks, and pensive women grace her canvases with devotion and communion. The Soft Ruffling of Feathers gives a gentle sensory experience recalling to the viewer the delicate sounds of the lithe movements of geese. The fierce and fastened gaze of her lions in pieces like Through the Jungle and The Butterfly Effect have a deeply meditative quality which transports the viewer and gives glimpses into a spirituality only those who have deeply suffered can express. As someone who lives with arthritis and mobility issues, Michaud’s paintings are a triumph, exceeding limitations and coming from the heart.

Through her work, Michaud hopes to offer strength to those in need and is honored when others express a connection to her work. Her style is one she calls “perceptual art”: her piece’s subjects seem to follow one as they move from here to there and her paintings are heavily layered making for many images and meaning within each painting. Working most of her life as a doctor, Michaud was discouraged from art at a young age in favor of medical studies. She now devotes herself entirely to her artistic practice.

Michaud lives and works in Quebec City, Canada. RENÉE MICHAUD

I am a painter and doctor based in Quebec, Canada. My work is a celebration of resilience and transformation in the face of the challenges that my body and soul experience every day. I have suffered from a severe form of arthritis since 2018 and have monocular vision, as a consequence of an autoimmune disease. My arthritis affects mostly my pelvis, cervical spine, and lumbar spine. As a result, I often struggle with completing simple tasks, such as walking as well as moving my neck and arms. I have learned how to cherish these simple things, which one may take for granted, and I do my best to remain positive and inspire other warriors who live with chronic illnesses.

Painting is my way of transcending physical suffering and entering a realm of peace. I work relentlessly, with iron determination; sometimes twelve to eighteen hours a day. I do not depict what the eye can see. Rather, I tap into the depths of the invisible, pouring my emotions on the canvas for others to feel. Art allows me to conquer the boundaries of tangible reality, communicate with my autistic son beyond the confines of verbal expression, and reach the souls of those who come in touch with it. It is my wish to inspire others in overcoming hardships and light up a glimmer of hope in their hearts.
