Marianne is a multidisciplinary artist and therapist from Montreal, Qc.

Art is in her eyes a precious tool for emotional healing,

as well as for opening and expanding consciousness.

She creates artworks that uplift and heal,

connecting us to the invisible Beauty that is always around us ;

linking us to the splendor of Collective Consciousness.

Additionally passionate about natural and holistic healing methods

(herbalism, raw foods, fasting, cold therapy, sound and color therapy),

as well as psychology, she seeks to understand the connection

between consciousness, art, and nature in order to develop an artistic education formula

suitable for creating a brighter and more harmonious world.

Why Mandalas?

Drawing inspiration from the organic forms found in nature, such as fruits, flowers, or snowflakes,

as well as the art and architecture of sacred structures from diverse religions,

my creative process is a prolonged endeavor.

It serves as a form of meditation and silent prayer,

constituting a concentrated practice that brings focus and tranquility to my mind.


Within my paintings, the circle embodies the concept of inclusion,

while the center signifies unity.


The use of gold symbolizes the sun and the profound essence of unconditional love,

reflecting the unchanging spiritual nobility inherent in each individual.

Colors serve to illustrate the unique expression of every beings or specific qualities.

The Rainbow, a vivid and universally understood symbol,

speaks eloquently about our shared humanity,

emphasizing the richness and beauty derived from its inherent diversity.
