Exploring Everything In-Between
J. Claveau works with mixed media to explore the connection between visual art and music.
Claveau uses watercolours, acrylics, collage and music meditation to bring her artistic vision to life.
For Claveau, art flows from the present moment and expresses the micro transitions of daily life, moving into colourful depths and through music compositions and song lyrics, making the invisible, visible.
She makes her own collage materials, often painting canvasses, deconstructing and rebuilding.
Claveau grew up playing in the ravines of Toronto. She considers herself a dual citizen of the city and the forest and exists between these two worlds.
When she is not in her studio in the secluded woods of Muskoka, she is hiking with her dogs Gracie and Charlie. She enjoys exploring forests and hiking the trails of her own backyard, Algonquin Park and The Kawartha Lakes. She finds endless inspiration in the solitude of nature.
She is inspired by landscapes, city scenes and the emotions that arise from the tasks of daily life. She brings these elements together through visual art and music.
