Maryline Lemaitre was born in France and lived in Asia for nine years before moving to Canada in 2001.

In her paintings she accumulates layers of materials, then glues, scratches, removes, returns, delivers, controls and flattens, chants a memorandum to the pallet or stencil. These elements are re-visited in large brush strokes or with old credit cards until she achieves the pictorial density that is her signature. It is an intuitive process inspired by a picture, a pattern, some words or a special piece of old original writing which could be the key to define a theme, and begin a series. Topics vary over time because they are inspired by her everyday life, by her memory, or are the expression of her unconscious.

Maryline Lemaitre has participated in a lot of solo and group shows around the world. Her paintings are part of the Cirque du soleil collection and of many corporate and private collections in the US, Canada, France, Hong Kong, Singapour and Shanghai. Her works have also been used as cover illustrations for two books published in Canada.
