Pierrette Voghel - Artiste peintre

«Painting rises from a distant place, where words become speechless...»

About the Artist


Since the very beginning, the desire to create has been deeply anchored in me.

Painting is a need that allows me to connect back to my true self.

With every passing day, my passion gradually evolved into a mission : Create and share artistic beauty !

People and locations are always at the center of my thoughts;
inspiring many emotions, that are to me, each a tiny story to
picture figuratively or abstractetly.

And now, the creation begins…

Always creatively pure and infinitely free.

Water and colors are projected on white canvas, interlacing together. All excited and curious, I observe them merging into the new beginnings of my future piece.
Then I superimpose multiple papers and mediums to create strength and textures.

All of this while keeping the delicateness of transparency.
When the piece finally pleases me, with impulsive, broad strokes and no hesitation, I complete it with a unique and personal calligraphy.

Each and every time the creative magic comes to life…

A new story’s image is born !




Many pieces from the artist are part of private collections in Canada, Europe, Japan and United States.
