E M Annette Courtemanche

Artist member since 2020
Toronto, Ontario

Artist Statement Annette’s journey into art started at an early age and she feels that she was born with a crayon or pencil in her hand. Painting is an extension of her everyday life. As an artist her art continues to evolve and nature and the environment is always a part of how she express myself as her art tries to negotiate what occupies the space around us and how we perceive those spaces. It is personal and expressive of someone born in one country, raised in another. It reflects her persistence in the face of personal struggles in forging an identity and finding her place in the world. Sometimes that world is upside down and by painting through her emotional state she figures out how to make sense of it all.

E.M. Courtemanche lives and works in the Christie Pits neighbourhood, and studied at the University of Toronto. Most of her work is held privately and she now exhibiting publicly.
