Claudette Castonguay

Claudette Castonguay was born in Quebec in 1949. She has been pursuing art for close to forty years. Self-taught, she has exhibited her paintings regularly across Canada since 1979. She left her former profession as a teacher in 1984 to devote her time exclusively to her painting career.

With each new canvas, Claudette chooses her colours and starts to draw. She then harmonizes light with her chosen colours and shapes, and the subject takes form. This approach keeps her paintings fresh and light and conveys the happiness she feels while creating. The results convey the individuality of characters, who are portrayed with spontaneity, sensitivity and humour.

“I am fascinated by the play activity of creation and I like to think that the canvas will bring as much joy to the person who will choose it as I am experiencing when I paint it.

“I am diligent in my studio. When I stand before the easel, there is only this present moment that exists. These instants are precious, sometimes magical. What more could I ask for?”

During these past 33 years, White Rock Gallery has become one of the most durable art destinations in British Columbia and a well-regarded online venue across North America and beyond. We understand that original art cannot be pushy. It should leave our walls for yours only when it speaks to you personally and persuasively. Step one for the gallery is simply to assemble compelling pieces of art, by building strong relationships with our diverse array of professional artists. Step two is to provide a welcoming, unhurried environment in which the displays are always kept fresh and interesting. Running through all these years is the forging of respectful relationships with clients whom we’ve known in many cases for over two decades. And we’re always happy to speak with newcomers. A phone call is a great way to start if you aren’t able to drop by in person.
