Biography

I am a visual arts artist who began working in communications as a graphic designer and artistic director. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in graphic design (UQAM) and a Diploma of Collegial Studies in plastic arts (Cégep de Saint-Laurent).

A series of my works, inspired by my fascination with blackness, were featured in two individual exhibitions: Visages marrons et autres personnages (Maison André-Benjamin-Papineau, Laval, 2008) and Noirs essentiels (Galerie Art Neuf, Montréal, 2010). In 2010, I received a bursary from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec in 2010 and was named resident artist in Nunavik. Some of my chosen works were featured in 2012 in Baie-Saint-Paul along with works created by First Nations artists during the event entitled Couleurs sur le monde, as well as in Rivière-Rouge against a setting of canvas tents and stones inspired by the summer camps in Nunavik. From January to April 2013, the Longueuil cultural centre presented the exhibition La rencontre_Nunavik: over 20 pieces based on my impressions of the High Arctic. While participating in the painting symposium Mamu, held at the Sept-Îles Shaputuan museum together with native and non-native artists in August 2013, I was chosen by my peers to be the honorary president of the next symposium to be held in 2014.

As once again a recipient of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec bursary, I will undertake my next project, named Intuition and Wonderment, in Nicaragua in 2014.
