Isabelle Jérôme is a bilingual, Ottawa-based, emerging artist with watercolour as her primary medium. As a high school educator, she hopes to spread this passion to younger generations. She is active in the Ottawa art scene, participating actively in many associations. Her works have been accepted in juried exhibitions and her paintings can be found in private collection here in Canada and abroad.
“From a young age, I have always been interested in the arts and worked with a variety of mediums including graphite, acrylics and soapstone. Once I discovered watercolour, I immediately fell in love with its transparency, accessibility and challenges. Being mostly self taught, I am still exploring different techniques and styles, but enjoy painting detailed, figurative art. Two of my passions are traveling and food; so I tend to look there for inspiration. My paintings are reflections of the gems discovered while wandering around the globe; whether it being a landscape, an animal or a snack eaten along the way.”(Isabelle Jérôme)
