Christine Lenoir-Godin has a way of viewing the world, even the negative parts of the world – with a fresh viewpoint. For those who have read her guest column in The Review, her look back at her childhood and growing-up years, brings back memories of those awkward days of trying to navigate the adult world as a small person. Lenoir-Godin’s art also gives a fresh perspective on a world that is often dark and cold. Her colourful paintings remind us of the importance of protecting our forests and waterways.
Lenoir-Godin has been an artist for more than 60 years and she works in many mediums; graphite, charcoal, inks, watercolours, pastels, mixed media, and acrylics. She enjoys working with found objects and sculpting. She paints in the abstract impressionist, realist, and impressionist styles. Visit The Review offices at 76 Main Street, Vankleek Hill, Monday to Friday, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm to view her works, which will be on display until June 30. (Photo D. Hodge)
