The Art of Epoxy!

Hi! This is Martine!

I’m crazy about resin (epoxy). I almost eat it for breakfast in the morning…

Haha!! Of course not!

But, we are not far from the truth but…

To make a long story short, my partner in life, Mario, has been an entrepreneur for over 20 years in the construction industry for epoxy flooring.

Known and recognized in many parts of the world, he has passed on his passion to me over the years.

And me, I have applied it in my arts…

Known and recognized in many parts of the world, he has passed on his passion to me over the years.

And me, I have applied it in my arts…

Here is my biography!

Artist or not an artist?

At the beginning of my adolescence, I quickly knew that the dominant in me, in terms of my interests and strengths, was Art. My artistic side was very strong on several levels. But it was inconceivable for me to have a career in such an area. For whatever reason, I had to convince myself that this was not the area of choice for the SUCCESS and RECOGNITION that I so desperately needed.

A false belief, of course!

Even the professional interest tests, at the end of high school, revealed that aspect of me that I was trying to hide.

My education…

I finally studied my whole life!
23 years of post-secondary education, self-education, college and university education in:

  • Administration
  • Computerized desktop and development
  • teaching
  • Accounting
  • Management

Why?

To put my Cartesian and rational side in the foreground.

And of course! I love studying! It is also a passion for me. You will also find that I was well accompanied!

Martine Viens and Mario Carrier

Love and passion…

Mario and I met in 2011. We quickly fell in love with each other. He worked a lot, both for his business and in his home in renovation.

So! I literally “fell into epoxy” by meeting my soul mate…

His floors are real works of art. I then succumb to the charm of this material, which is not easily tamed, and I integrated it into my passion: painting on canvas.

Another stroke of love!!!

My career was a success, but I still missed something…

For about ten years: At the same time, I was a company trainer and a college lecturer (in office automation and accounting).

For another decade: I held a position where I was a database manager/developer, managed a large budget envelope and optimized business processes for an institution of the Government of Quebec.

In the meantime, I also started a small business in Business Process Optimization Consulting Services.

I have also, in my spare time, been an amateur painter, at my own time, for about 15 years. That’s when I felt better. The time just stopped— But I ended up shutting it down because of a lack of time.

I wasn’t doing what I wanted to do…

Recently, I left my position as a public servant, leaving aside salary and a golden retirement, to let myself go to my passion, on which I have been working from day one, from morning to night.

I LOVE it!! I even forget to eat. Time flies so fast when you love what you do. I really want to share that passion with you in a way that is a little bit different from what’s on the web. I am not reinventing the wheel, but I will touch on a number of topics that are rarely discussed and I will introduce you to a new concept!

We will all work together…

I’m back to my first passion… Art!!!

Here is Mario’s bio.

Mario has been working with his father since his earliest years and is learning different construction trades.

In 1997, his father and brother started a flooring business in the epoxy industry. In 1999, Mario officially joined the family business “Entretien Carrier & Fils inc.”. He develops a strong expertise there even before the competition appears or becomes important on the market.

In 2004, he took over 100% of the family business and developed important networking in the commercial construction industry. His son is now working with him as an apprentice. A succession is assured…

From 2013 to 2018, while running his business, he held a position in technical services for a epoxy manufacturer and also became a trainer for “aspiring applicators”. In this job, he travels between Canada, the USA, Europe and even Africa to train these epoxy applicators.

Today, he operates his business full time and is also a manufacturer of floor preparation machinery. He is actively involved in the expansion of E-Box-Y Kit on several levels and always shares his expertise with me.
