I met Lucette Aldous in 2019 through her daughter Floeur, while she was an Artist in Residence in Albany. Without knowing anything about Lucette, I was immediately struck by her small stature and powerful presence. I was drawn to her features and felt a strong desire to capture her in paint. I feel very privileged to have met Lucette and been given the opportunity to attempt to capture her essence through painting.
