“I paint figurative oil paintings that move me,
bring me joy, warm my heart and touch my soul.”

— Agnes Jorgensen

Agnes Jorgensen - Artist from Quebec, Canada

My art is inspired by life, by the people around me and by all that is us. And most importantly my art is inspired by the strong calling of my heart to take those subtle ideas from deep within and bring them to life on canvas.

At a young age I loved to colour. My favourite subject was the maidens in fairytale books. Colouring was my naive way of expressing my emotions and making them tangible. Fast forward in time and I now paint figurative oil paintings that fuse Old-Master techniques with a contemporary narrative style. My art is often described as moving or emotional, symbolic, uplifting and even inspirational.

My process is to apply layer upon layer of rich, vibrant, colours and soft gestures to reveal illuminating effects. Throughout the buildup of each layer I strive to create an expression of feminine softness within my art to communicate emotion, a sense of harmony, depth and texture.

“Deeply felt human emotion is expressed by Agnes Jorgensen in her figurative oil paintings. She combines Old-Master techniques with a contemporary narrative style with a compelling use of symbolism, poetry and harmony.”

— Renee Phillips, Founder, Director and Curator of Manhattan Arts International
