Jacqueline Poirier is the resident artist at the Ritz-Carlton in Toronto.
“The Crazy Plate Lady is the humorous yet fitting name that I gave to my brand over three years ago. Today I can honestly say that I am not just a woman crazy about plates and painting on them, but I have become my moniker – I truly am a crazy plate lady!”
My work as the crazy plate lady has granted me the opportunity to travel all over the world, but doesn’t often afford a lot of time for personal vacation. Paintbrush to porcelain I create my sojourns on plates and photograph them strategically to capture the juxtaposition between my immediate reality and dream destination. These ‘momentary mini-vacations’ satisfy my wanderlust without causing me to sacrifice too much time doing what I love most… which is painting for all of you!”
Her beautiful artwork is one-of-a-kind hand painted designs on original porcelain plates.
