Thank you so much for visiting my site. I hope you enjoy the work! ArleneDubo

I have been exhibiting and selling my paintings at one-person and group exhibitions for 28 years, in Canada (Montreal, Toronto, and now Bear River, NS), and the USA (Nashville and Cookeville). My process typically starts with an engaging idea about internal or external nature, which I explore through a series of acrylic paintings.
