Cecile Comblen About

I was born in an artistic family in Belgium. I live in St.Vincent part time and mostly in Montreal, My paintings are gestural, free, colorful. They are inspired by my environment and a combination of structure, movement, imagination and symbols . Add Comment


Cecile was born in Belgium . Her first degree was in Education from the University of Calgary, allowing her to teach languages. After raising her family, she returned to school to gain a BFA in Fine Arts with Honors from Ottawa University in 1993. Since then, Cecile has held numerous exhibitions in Quebec, Ontario, Canada, Belgium; New York and Miami in the USA; as well as Mexico, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, the Dominican Republic, Chile. What attracts her most in the island of St. Vincent(West Indies) where she has a studio are the colorful mountainous landscapes, the vegetation. She is inspired by the intensity of ever-changing light and intense color created by it.

She loves the physicality of painting, where the body spreads itself onto a large space, creating big scale work, where the intuitive hand leads the way.

Cecile also writes poetry in French,
