Meet The Artist
Very young Marie-Michèle lived close by the Granby Zoo, where her parents would take her everyday for a morning stroll. As she visits these animals during her childhood, she develops a deep fascination and a passion for all of them.
Her studies bring her to graduate as a Speech Therapist. But, during her studies, she attends Concordia University in Fine Arts, where a particularly inspiring teacher helps her refine her drawing technic and skills.
On a daily bases, she works with children who have speech issues and remains creative, since she must constantly compensate speech with movement and images.
It’s with the arrival of her first child that she really combines her artistic talent and her passion for animals. Marie-Michele couldn’t find the perfect decor for baby’s room. So, she started to draw adorable baby animals inspiring herself of the cutest ones on earth.
Her daughter got use to talking to these adorable creatures and even to wish them good night! It was a real success! Friends visiting quickly requested their favorite animal. And, that’s how the illustrative collection LE NID Atelier got started.
