Ghislaine Gargaro

The painting process and the finished painting are both a celebration of life. Painting gives the artist the most transforming pleasures. When painting, one feels the ever present beauty of this world.
I am inspired to continue in the path that I have chosen. With joy I am making my way.

Ghislaine Gargaro graduated from Laval University in Quebec City and after a successful career as a nurse and as a nursing manager in the South Bay, art became her main focus.
