Artistic approach : For Marie-Claude Jacques, to paint is above all an adventure of movements and colors. Responsive to the influence of music, color and light, she recreates the atmosphere of public places in which her characters evolve. Her large brush stroke gives the impression of living within the picture, to be one more character in her work of art.

Collections : Private and corporate in Canada, United states and Europe. The Canadian National, Bombardier, Desjardins Trust, the Jean Coutu Foundation, the Société des Alcools du Québec, the City of Hamilton in Ontario are some of the companies who collect her art works.

Media coverage : Several reports in «Le Nouvelliste» daily newspaper of the City of Trois-Rivières who regularly cover the activities of the artist. Marie-Claude Jacques has made television interview in Shawinigan in March 1996.
