Jacqueline Poirier

Jacqueline Poirier paints stuff on white plates. Doesn’t sound that interesting? I thought the same until I saw them.

Her subjects cover a really wide variety of subjects – from koi to pancakes to landscapes to Mike Tyson, and they’re all stunning, no matter how banal the subject. They’re so good, in fact, that she was named the Resident Artist at The Ritz-Carlton in Toronto. Who knew that was even a thing? She has a little shop in the hotel, the restaurant’s walls are covered in them, and all their meals come on her one-of-a-kind painted charger plates.

She’s also plate painter to the stars, with commissions for A-list luminaries like Morgan Freeman and Al Pacino. It’s easy to see why she’s been such a huge success. She seems to paint everything with equal talent and skill. Who does that?

Anyway, I need a whole lot of them. Unfortunately, although her website has a shopping cart, I have yet to figure out how to actually buy the things. But I’m going to keep trying!

Her instagram @thecrazyplatelady  is where a lot of the magic happens. Go check her out!

  4. Talented indeed! But how interesting that she may be unethical. It would be unusual for such a successful, well known artist (as she appears to be) to get away with copyright infringement but, on the other hand, is it likely that she has paid a licensing fee to all the owners of the images she is using as the basis of her plate paintings? How intriguing. I do so love that chameleon plate though.
