Nathalie Villeneuve is a Canadian-born visual artist. Her paintings are best described as Expressionist meets Parisian chic.  Each one of her pieces is individual with its own personality, with an essence of vulnerability, strength, and playfulness. Nathalie expresses the vision of her art on canvas through movement and creating a series of heavy lines contrasting bright colors fading into soft brush strokes on canvas. One of Nathalie’s goal is to assist women in cultivating their creativity, relax & have fun through painting workshops.  She also help women in raising money for their heart-centered causes through painting fundraisers & event.



 I have been waiting to do something like this for about 5 years. I had such an amazing time with great people! I was filled with peace and joy as I completed a real work of art. Easy to do, it allowed my creativity to flow. Now I know I can do this. Would sign up again in a second. Thank you for this spectacular experience! ~ Liz C. Russell
