This Montréal based artist came from Québec City
She began her career at CBC/ Radio Canada as a designer and art director. She has collaborated on a number of television, publishing and performance art projects.
About Art Life, she has said:
‘The book is for the most part a sort of artistic coming-of-age story, in which I search out others and listen to their experiences. I try to learn by observing, evoking the idea of studying a species: the artist. These bird costumes can be seen as a way of representing the themes of the persona and protection from the outside world – both ideas present throughout the book. How to be permeable, to take in influences while remaining whole and protected are very much of interest to me; it’s a difficult balance to achieve as an artist. Finally, as I also speak about my fear of falling in the book, the feathers are there to soften my eventual fall, which happens when I’m standing on a branch and try to hoist myself up on a tree that isn’t mine.” Conundrum: An Annual Magazine of Comic Arts, 1, 2020: 21.
