I was very proud to win an acquisition competition this spring as part of the Policy for the Integration of Arts in Architecture. What a joy it was to attend, at the end of June, the hanging of my work Les fleurs at the municipal library of Saint-Bonaventure, near Drummondville.


Workshops to bring culture to school

Last winter, I was approached by Anne-Marie Gilbert and Sonia Gagnon, two teachers from the École primaire d’éducation internationale in Trois-Rivières to give cultural mediation workshops to their Grade 5 students. They found me thanks to the Répertoire Culture-Éducation, in connection with the program La culture à l’école of Québec’s Ministry of Education.

I had been thinking about this video for a while. The idea came to me in 2018 during my artistic residency at Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts. In addition to the photographs inspired by the Celtic tale The Seal Woman, I wanted to create a video with seals in motion.


Cultural mediation activities for young audiences

The director of the CNE, Ms. Manon Guérin, proposed that I collaborate with her team to design cultural mediation activities to accompany the photographs in my series Beyond the Looking Glass. It was the perfect opportunity to enhance this exhibition, which has already been very successful elsewhere in Quebec.

A video about my Northern Crossing series

One of the great services offered to artists who exhibit at the Centre d’exposition de Mont-Laurier, is the production of a video about the event. These videos, that always feature interview segments with the artist, then serve as cultural mediation tools in the little exploratory space that adjoins the main show room. As a bonus,…

The Joy of Making Fine Art Prints
