'Melissa Cormier‘s intricate graphite drawings inspired by organic motifs and textures create surrealist compositions that intentionally reference the body. Cormier explores different textures from natural specimens: both flora and fauna. Rendered with fine precision and detail, her graphite drawings materialize on the page like a lucid dream' -Lonsdale Gallery

By taking a close look at the natural world, it quickly became the foundation of my inspiration. From the terrestrial radius of the earth to the never-ending vistas of the cosmic realm,  my fascination and admiration of these spaces are the textures that dwell within them. 

 

Working mainly in the style of abstraction, I combine fluid gestures using mainly graphite, watercolor and ink (and recently digital tools)  then fuse representational patterns into the overall composition. 

 

I completed her BFA in Printmaking at OCAD University in Toronto, On Canada in 2012 and currently operate out of my studio in Toronto.

When I am not in the studio, I am outside rummaging for new textures to draw
