MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST
Laureen Marchand lives in Val Marie, Saskatchewan, just north of the Montana border at the gateway to Grasslands National Park. Inspired by this region’s subtlety and remoteness, her paintings reflect on our ideas about and perception of beauty. These artworks invite us to see not just the painted object, but ourselves in it.
