MA in Visual Arts from Université Laval (2019), MA in Education from University of Toronto (2004). For over 15 years I have been an active arts educator and creator of community art projects (Musée des beaux arts de Québec, Culture à l’école, Musée Ambulant, Learning through the arts, Pech-Sherpa for la Manif d’art 2019 and the Carrefour Internationale du Théâtre 2019). My artistic practice is based on recuperation and looks at ecological issues through creative projects.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

My personal art practice is based on recuperation and is ecologically engaged, meaning that I privilege the use of up-cycled and found materials to create art. My projects in the schools and the community are inspired by the same process, and so with my students we engage in recuperating items (plastic packaging and wrappings, paper, cardboard, natural found materials) to then create art that is sensitive to and in dialogue with our relationship to the natural world. Projects can be both personal and collective, engaging the students in drawing, pictorial work, sculpture, embroidery and sewing, and other manual-based forms of creation. Emphasis is placed on the power of the art process as a means for self encounter and as a way of understanding our place in the world. I have worked with a wide range of students including those with special needs (I recently developed a special 8-week project for autistic students and am currently working on an English art project with LD classes).
