Lilie is an abstract artist based in British Columbia, Canada.
She has expressed herself through art from an early age, and after moving across the Atlantic to Canada, she began to seek out more time to paint in between her career and raising her children, gradually stepping away from accounting and finance to dedicate herself to her life long passion for painting.
In the last decade, she has mainly produced work in mix media and acrylic on canvas.
She creates abstract artworks that concentrate on the aesthetics of form, texture, space and colour; and the unique visual interplay between them. As a nod to her previous career in financial analysis, numeral forms occasionally arise in her work.
Lilie’s work is her interpretation of the everyday life experiences. She is fascinated by the world around her, and could equally be inspired by an idea, a textured surface, the way the light reflects a particular shape, a tree leaf on the ground or a coverage in the media.
Lilie has an instinctive approach to her work, and tends not to plan too much, usually starting a piece of artwork with the combination of an abstraction, an image, a colour harmony or an emotion in mind. Each piece follows a moment-by-moment evolving process whilst making some marks in the direction of the original idea. Her uniqueness lies in her ability to be at once bold and bursting with energy whilst often also retaining a contrasting and overall delicate resonance.
