Giselle Denis Artist Profile

It can take years for an artist to find her voice. This comes with hundreds and thousands of hours put into the thing they are creating. The artist has to continually create, sing, write and build the thing they love to find their voice that becomes recognizably theirs. It is a journey of trusting the process to dig deep inside yourself to find ideas that are truly your own. Stay focused. Do not look to the right or to the left of what others are doing. Once you find your voice, it becomes a source of power to be used to affect the world around you. We've each been given a voice that is unique, and meant to be shared. We all have something to say. Some of us say it with a painting, others with music, some with dancing or writing. Your voice has been given to you to share. These paintings are a collection of my voice on canvas. 

I paint Hope. My vision & story are all about Hope. View my biography video here.

I connect to people in a unique way through my Live Painting Experience. Art has always had a way of breaking down barriers. Time and again it has provided a place where strangers can find common ground and open the door to communicate with one another. I paint Hope. My message is Hope. My story is Hope and my vision is all about Hope. To watch my Biography video click here. Click here to watch a candid Q & A video done in my studio. 


I live painted at the Raffles Hotel Dubai from 2017 - 2020. For a recap video of my last adventure painting in Dubai, click here. I also live paint at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.


I have a goal to raise $1 million for charity. My live painting for charities has raised over $765,000. One of my paintings sold for $50,000 for Little Warriors. I donate 100% of the money raised through my paintings. 


One of my canvases was a Lexus for the Vignettes Design Show. I painted a piano as an art installation piece for the YESS Organization. I have a 40x26 foot mural installation in Edmonton of a larger than life forest with flowers. 

I couldn't be happier doing what I love and sharing it with the world. Thank you for reading and for showing interest in my journey.
