Annie Lajeunesse, first developed her art with the creation of hand-painted wooden signs. The opportunity to create a unique visual for paddles then came through a friend’s grandfather who had handcrafted some paddles before his passing. Since they had never been varnished he asked Annie if she could paint the name of the children and create a unique design on each one. It was at that moment that Annie was inspired to pursue this unique art. Further research then led her to discover that the hand-painted paddle is directly derived from our collective heritage. All of this led to the beginning of the adventure!
Annie Lajeunesse is definitely an artist with unique talent which stands out thanks to her hand painted paddles.
