May's Artist of the Month: Marie-Eve Turgeon
This month, we are over-joyed to introduce you to an artist who's name should be shouted from the roof tops.
Although Marie-Eve Turgeon has been an artist since she was very young, it wasn't until she was in her thirties that she left the art of baking and dedicate her time to her illustrations. Living in the Laurentian's, it is no surprise that her work is largely inspired by the landscape.
Illustrations that make you go Hmmmmmm...
A perseverant woman who is proud of her convictions, Marie-Eve uses her art to convey messages of hope and to pay tribute to the women who inspire her. Her talent rests in her ability to portray the tragedies of our times with softness and demeanour.

She frequently initiates challenges in which she shares one illustration per week. For example, the #52women project, during which she shared a portrait of one woman per week for the entire year of 2020.
An arch in honour Spring
When we approached Marie-Eve, we thought it would be appropriate to launch her collection in the spring, to inaugurate the changing of the season. Her use of pastels and floral elements alongside transparency and fluidity portray what the warm months of the year feel like.
When Marie-Eve suggested that we create wall decals in the shape of an arch with flowers and other motifs inside. It is like she has read our minds. We had been talking about that exact design for a while.
Her collection is mainly composed of wall decals in the shape of arches and circles, all adorned with beautiful flowers, birds and landscapes. They will add a lovely touch of colour and life to a small space or a neglected corner of your home.

His collection also contains wallpaper patterns, sometimes coloured, sometimes monochrome. We particularly appreciate his technical work, which allows for almost no repetition in his pattern.

Whether it's to decorate your reading corner, the living room or the office, Marie-Eve Turgeon's stickers and designs will certainly bring calm and serenity to your space.
