Couture sur Papier, tissu, fil, collage sur panneau de bois
Born in 1961 and living in Montreal, I first studied fashion design and then obtained my DEC in Visual Arts after returning to school in 2011.
A professional member of RAAV since 2017, I exhibit regularly in cultural centres and arts centres. A first professional exhibition in 2012 at the Maison de la culture Pierre-Chartrand (Montreal) was followed by several others, including the Maison Villebon in Beloeil (2019) and the Maison Antoine-Beaudry in Montreal (2020).
I have also received various awards, the most important of which are: a 2nd prize at the Festival des Arts de Mascouche in 2019 and the Emmanuel Galland Curator’s Award in 2015.
As a visual artist, my creative intent is a meeting between craft techniques and contemporary art. “Drawing on thread » was born out of an interest in photos of families sleeping in old albums. Photos from a time when these were taken during important events in society.
Paper became part of the photos and the trio « photo, thread and paper » became an integral part of my current work.
