Mairi Budreau, AFCA
Through the eyes of Mairi Budreau the viewer is captivated by the power of light and depth in her paintings. From her palette we witness for ourselves an incredible bonding of beauty and nature. Her uniquely Canadian style allows us to view nature with a lasting impression so that we can no longer go for a walk in nature without thinking about the work we have experienced.
