About Ysabel LeMay

Traveling extensively, I capture fragments of nature – plants, animals, and the elements – constantly replenishing my voluminous catalogue of the living world. My hypercollage process is highly instinctual and organic, allowing each piece to dictate its own destiny. From a single, simple starting point – an image, a color, an emotion – I follow a meticulous process. First isolating then extracting elements of my photos, I weave fragments together into intricate compositions of beauty.

Born and raised in Quebec, Canada, LeMay fastened her connection to the natural world as a small child, at her family’s secluded cottage in the north of the province. Though always most at peace in the wilderness, it is in the jungle of the advertising world that LeMay honed the craft of visual expression. Over the course of 15 years, she handled graphic design, art direction, and the operation of her own agency. The moment came, though, when she sought a more rewarding and beneficial path for her creativity. LeMay refocused initially on painting and then photography, with which she would collect the raw materials for her digital collages. Traveling extensively, LeMay and her camera capture fragments of nature — plants, animals and the elements — constantly replenishing her voluminous visual catalog of the living world.
