The Champlain Library will display paintings by Kim Fournier for the months of January, February and March.  Kim is an emerging artist residing in Vankleek Hill and is an active member of the Artistes Hudson Artists Association based in Hudson, Quebec.

Since childhood, Kim has always loved creating works of art.  While pursuing a business career and raising a family, she still found the time to study and experiment with pastel drawing, watercolour painting, mixed media and stained glass.  Since retiring in 2012, Kim has been able to focus on both her passions: art creation and outdoor recreation.

She is an avid cyclist and cross-country skier and brings a camera to photograph the scenery along the way.  These photographs guide her landscape compositions and inspire the mood and lighting reflected in her artwork.

Being active in the outdoors energizes her both physically and spiritually.  It is this positive energy that inspires her to create the colourful and light-filled beauty that you will find in all of her paintings.

To view some of Kim’s painting, visit the Champlain Library at 94 Main Street in Vankleek Hill.  For more information call the library at 613-678-2216.
