Marie –Andrée Leblond
Born June 6th 1978 in St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, she became interested in drawing at the very young age of twelve and learned oil painting on her own when she was fourteen. Upon receiving her diploma in visual arts from Cégep du Vieux Montréal, she continued studying “illustration” at the Collège Salette. Marie-Andrée went on to win prizes at different municipal exhibitions and began being noticed by art galleries. She made her definitive move to the art market at the age of 19. She exhibits permanently at the the Galerie Knowlton and in other galleries across Canada. Recognizing her opportunities and with a lot of ambition she still wants to learn from her work. Nowadays her paintings are mostly acrylics with water-colour ink, a technique that she has adopted for the richness of the colours.
