Marie-Eve Proteau is a Canadian artist based in Trois-Rivières, Québec. She’s working full time in her sunny little studio accompanied by her curious rabbit. After exploring her work as a painter on various unconventional supports, she’s now focusing on her first twisted love, acrylic on canvas. An iconic feminine theme prevails in her paintings in a form of surrealist portraits where the emotions are implicitly drawn from the complexity of a relationship between two people; expectation, worry, obsession, secret, domination, soulmate affection. more » “Interview with Artist Marie-Eve Proteau”
Q: Tell us about Skye Davies Inc. what are your goals and future plans for your designs?
A: The primary inspiration for Skye Davies Inc. comes from Mother Nature and through my brand, I create one of a kind, hand-dyed apparel for women of all shapes and sizes, sourced from ethical fabric suppliers. I want the women who wear my clothes to feel at their zenith while being comfortable, empowered and free to express themselves through the colours, textures and silhouettes of my creations.
Future plans for my brand include capsule collections of hand-dyed, ready-to-wear knitwear, a line of reusable bags, satchels and purses, as well as a collection of colourfully detailed, patch worked, evening skirts.
Q: Your fabrics are unique, can you share with us a little about your process of preparing the fabric and making it original?

My passion has always been to create fantasy worlds and fantastic scenery.
I am attracted to everything that is dreamlike, mystical, mysterious and powerful and fortunately I do a job that allows me to introduce, mix and rework, all of these influences that fascinate me in all my creations.
I recently started a series of personal projects, fantastic tales, of which I recreated atmosphere, characters, costumes and settings thanks also to the participation of a fantastic team.
For the aesthetic style of the images of this project (completely shot in the studio) I wanted to imitate the style of Flemish painting with the awesomeness that arouse to us the hybrid and grotesque creatures that appear in some paintings of this kind of art and its use of very dark backgrounds in sharp contrast with the subjects in light.

My portraits depict a playful engagement with nature in her guise as the eternal feminine. Allegorical figures wear honeycomb garb, butterfly crowns, and caterpillar necklaces. Last summer’s leaves are raiment for their decorative pleasure and metaphoric compost for the eyes. Entomological hats and mythopoetic headgear display life cycles, food sources and sometimes predators as well.
