Monotype on copper or lithography, each of the techniques used allows to witness the birth of an image specific to one's vision. She finds inspiration in the simplicity of everyday objects and nature. Her training in graphic design leads her to favor realism and precision.
Winner of a grant at the Quebec Premier's Art Competition, her works are part of the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec, the Bibliothèque Gabrielle-Roy, the Port of Montreal and several private collections.
