About Me

Candace Thibeault grew up in South Carolina and fell in love with exploring mediums and color at a very young age.  She spent summers in high school participating in creative arts programs that would fuel her creative interests.  

 

It was in college that she began painting murals; painting her university’s first on campus mural.  Candace worked closely with visual arts and public relations professors to develop The Ohio Bicentennials promotional/visual displays.   In 2003, Candace graduated from Capital University, Columbus OH with a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree,  Public Relations and Art Therapy. 

 

In 2004, Candace relocated to Boston, MA to pursue a primary interest in visual arts and began building her professional portfolio. While working as a part time paralegal and gallery assistant, it was this combination of career paths that was a catalyst in her decision to purchase a South Boston art gallery that she would own and operate for 11 years. 

 

Candace worked exclusively as a corporate art supplier; framing and choosing works for educational institutions, restaurants, architectural firms, and pharmaceutical companies.   Outside of work, Candace worked as an artist in residence for a charter school, providing therapeutic visual art activities for at risk youth. 

 

 In 2006, Candace began experimenting with mixed media, and stumbled upon a style of art that she quickly adopted as her own.  Since the start of her contemporary art career, Candace has had work in various galleries in Boston,Rhode Island and South Carolina.  Her work has found its home in many private and corporate collections.  She has has had her work featured in The Charlotte Magazine, Art New England Magazine and Artscope Magazine (A Boston publication).  

Candace has had the opportunity to display her work throughout Columbia, in such places as 701 Whaley, Motor Supply, Bourbon Columbia and the University of South Carolina.  She currently resides in Gilbert, SC where she paints and teaches full time from her home studio.

Vision

'With my work, I seek out the beautiful moments in life.  The same way that fragrances or songs can trigger memories from distant times, I hope my art can bring a bit of nostalgia to those who view it.'
