Dee Poisson, AFCA – Artist Statement

"Through my work over the past 20 years, I have strived to share little things and places that people rush by every day without seeming to notice.  The contemplative process of colored pencil is a contradiction to the speed of contemporary society and lends itself so well to the details of the subjects that I choose.   There are other mediums in my life yet none match the relevance of colored pencil for me.

My work shows the beauty of inconsequence. I endeavor to bring life to the ordinary so that it can be appreciated.  I have learned to see and its exciting that there is so much more to enjoy in our surroundings when we are not in a hurry.

Some of my work seeks to find humour in an ordinary day.  Other work appreciates the fold of a leaf, the plump of a berry or a life moment of a bug.  All of these things require moments of stillness for me which are a conscious effort in my own busy day.

AFCA is an accreditation that I have earned through the Board of Governors at the Federation Of Canadian Artists in 2016."
