Ysabel LeMay

Ysabel LeMay's artistic journey is itself a "Journey into Simplicity".  In 1987 she began a thriving career as a graphic artist in Canada and then made a transition into the fine arts studying painting at the Emily Carr University of Art and continued to devote herself full-time to her painting for many years.  In 2010 she turned her full attention to photography.

Combining her technical expertise with her deep-seated roots as a painter, LeMay continues her exploration into the power and divinity of nature through a unique process she calls "Photo-Fusion". At first glance, you might think you are looking at a hyper-realistic painting.  However, LeMay's innovative technique is a lengthy process during which hundreds of photographs are taken and light and visual properties are attuned. She then assembles one detail at a time in a painterly fashion to form a single composition. In 2011 LeMay was selected the winner of Kipton Art Rising Star program in New York. Since then she has exhibited worldwide in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and The Netherlands. Four Square Fine Arts now represent her in London and the UK.
