Born in Montreal on March 8, 1956, Louise Lauzon is part of a line of artists who, by entertaining the viewer’s eye, seek to touch their spirit and their heart. From the age of fifteen, her talent was recognized by Brother Jérôme, friend and collaborator of Paul-Émile Borduas. Heir to Brother Jérôme’s innovative educational approach, she has led painting workshops at Notre-Dame College for more than twenty years. Her artistic achievements also include the creation of several illustrations.

Louise Lauzon describes her art as personal figuration. “For me, the main thing is to be present in yourself and each time you pick up the brush, to be faithful to your interiority, whether it be figurative or abstract.” Her fresh and colorful paintings take us on a journey through an enchanting and fanciful universe. Many characters come to life in a variety of places, the seaside, the city or rural scenes. Wiry, wacky and endearing, the omnipresent characters display different attitudes depending on their activities and they always manage to bring a smile to our faces.

Louise Lauzon has always made a living from her art by combining creation and animation. Her first exhibitions, including one in Paris in 1981, put her career on track. Her works are now part of important collections in Canada, the United States and Europe.
