Local artist Kim Fournier’s works are on display at The Review offices until March 31. Fournier has done mixed-media work and more recently, has delved into the world of watercolour. Although she finds watercolour to be the most challenging medium to date, she says she is drawn to it because of its lightness.
“The light shines through it,” Fournier says.
She claims she is still developing her style, but take one look at her beautiful landscapes and one could say she has found it. Her love of the outdoors and rugged and unusual landscapes shines through her paintings. Some favourites from a recent trip to northern Europe can be found on her website at: www.kimfournierart.com.
Fournier is retired now, but working part-time. The MBA’s career history includes a stint in public service, work in IT and some time teaching. She says that she took up painting when her children were young and found it refreshing to paint after workdays spent using a different part of her brain. She continues to challenge herself and loves, for example, to create a painting using only three pigments. She has taken lessons in Hawkesbury and in Hudson.
You can see her works on display in The Review’s meeting room and in the reception area; The Review is open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Fournier’s works are for sale.
