MEETING REGIMENTAL ONETON by LILY

Regi lors d’une promenade au centre ville de Montréal, et cela a été un vrai
Plus tard, j'ai eu l’occasion

confirmé mes impressions.

About your work
What is your training?
I have no formal training. I never had the
aspiration to be taught how to express myself. I also feel if you are being
taught how to paint by someone, being taught their technique, you start to
paint like them, and the goal for me is to have a style totally independent and
original. I want to paint like me not like my teacher. You can attend school or
be trained formally, but that’s just not the way I do things.
