L’Africain has developed an original esthetic, influenced by Riopelle and Jackson Pollock’s art. The inspiration comes from the line and seems to guide the art, often figurative, which blossoms fully in subjects such as the animal world and nature.
Her dreams become a reality: in 2000 she is interviewed by Radio-Canada for her exhibit at the Sylvain Tremblay Gallery in Montreal . In June 2008 she has an exhibit at the Galerie d’Arts Contemporains in Montreal and in November 2008 she takes part in the Lanaudière’s Croix-Rouge auction.
