Maurice Dionne is a full time watercolour artist in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He is inspired by the world around him such as the vibrancy of cityscapes, as well as the beauty of nature. These are features in his continued explorations of the medium.
Inspired by watercolour’s nature and transparency, I strive to catch the light, the mood and vibrancy of what I perceive. The way pigments mix and play on paper is truly remarkable. I also look for innovative ways of presenting my work. Sometimes it is the traditional framing and matting under glass. Other times, I prefer to seal the image and finish with an elegant floater frame without glass. In this case, I wish to remove the glass barrier between the viewer and the image, offering an improved experience. (Maurice Dionne)
