Nadia Bertrand was born in Quebec. “I get my inspiration from life and its movements. And I LOVE New York. One of the highlights of my career was an installation piece in Edmonton, Canada during the Art and Design festival in 2006, where I realized how strong and profound painting is for me. When I paint it’s very important to find a balance in the composition by combining energetically expressionistic gestures and a fluid sense or organization. I really enjoy to work on large canvases, because abstract painting needs that kind of space to give a full body experience. I  am offering for the eye a space of contemplation and meditation trough colors and shapes created totally involved in the present moment.”
