Art from Lydia Pépin (@lydiapep)

Her paintings, while bathing the subjects in a penumbra of natural warm light, capture and crystallize the beauty of the every day scene. She believes that her art should embrace the magnitude of humanity by getting into the spirit of the subject and conveying its beauty and emotion on canvas.

When not spending countless hours working on a piece of art, she teaches in several artistic mediums, including drawing classes at the Ottawa School of Art. She also makes time to participate in several fundraising events, including her own; “Art For Awareness.” The event seeks to raise awareness on the subject of human trafficking, while also providing a venue for local artists to showcase their work.
