Isabelle Beaubien

U

sing handmade tools, Isabelle Beaubien’s dynamic mixed media paintings are created with layers of vibrant acrylic colour.

Her unique aesthetic has seen her developing painting techniques that push the limits of texture and form; applying glossy resin directly onto the paint to enhance each canvas while giving a sculptural appearance to the completed work. In her studio, Beaubien adopts an alter ego while

Originally from Montreal, Canada, Beaubien gained her Master’s degree in Contemporary Art from The Villa Arson in France before moving to Florida (via London) to live and work. Her next solo exhibition opens in Miami in September. isabellebeaubien.com isabeau97@icloud.com
