Maude is a visual artist who lives and works in Montreal, Canada. Currently completing her MFA at Concordia University, she is working mainly with drawing and painting, but she is also interested by body movement and video. She is fascinated by biology and botany, as well as the idea of disrupting their taxonomy system.

Sensual beings emerge from the void, they want to grow, to communicate, to seduce and be seduced, to live and to reproduce. They live in a vessel, an envelope of sensations, feelings. It becomes a place for visible and invisible things to happen. Water, sun, and wind model it just like fear, pain, joy or love.
