Mark Andre Labonté was born in 1968 in Toronto, Ontario. Marc's paintings are filled with images which reflect his French Canadian summers on the farms, river and woods of his youth. The landscapes are filled with trees and flowers. There are horses roaming outside in the woods. His media of choice are watercolours and conté crayon. The images are poetic, filled with delicate colours and the rhythms of magical places and times. His art work has been part of a number of exhibitions along with fellow Creative Spirit Artists:
