Anne-Sophie Cournoyer is a Canadian watercolor artist who was born and raised in Quebec City. After wandering around the globe for a little while, she migrated to the west coast in 2011 and now resides in Victoria, BC. From the premise that energy follows thought, she sees the creative process of art making as an opportunity to give form to and energize the spiritual qualities and ideals to which she seeks to attune her life. Her work is inspired by her strong interest in esoteric philosophy and mysticism. Her artistic style is influenced by many elements such as a love for the details and elegance found in botanical watercolor painting, a draw for ethereal and translucent colors, and an attraction to the mystery, sensuality and hidden meaning found in symbolist art. She also finds the human face of great beauty and just like to honor its uniqueness by painting portraits.
