Alain Potrel was born in France in 1964.  He is a Canadian citizen, but lives and paints in America.  Alain never formally studied art, he was drawn to Earth Sciences where he obtained his PhD.  He independently studied abstraction for more than 40 years before picking up the brush and trying it himself.  Regarding the basis for his work, Alain says, "My inspiration is my life and my painting is driven by my emotions."
