Mont Pinacle, Californie,
Lise Létourneau was born in the heart of the Boreal forest in L'Annonciation,
Quebec, in the Upper Laurentians. After finishing her studies at the School
of Fine Arts and the University of Quebec in Montreal, she returned to
her hometown in 1972 and worked as an art therapist.
It wasn't until 1990 that she launched her artistic career. In 1995, a
grant from the Arts Council of Quebec enabled her to present her first
solo show, Du rituel à la mémoire (From Ritual to
Memory) at the Glendon Gallery of York University in Toronto. Between
1996 and 1999, another major show, Témoins muets (Silent
witnesses), toured well-known exhibition centers in Quebec. In 1998, she
participated in the symposium Proximité in Victoriaville, Quebec,
and in 2001, in the event known as La piste de l'art (The Art Trail),
organized by Praxis Art Actuel.
Since 1993 she has participated in a number of group shows in Quebec,
Canada and Europe.
Lise Létourneau is a member of the Quebec Council of Textile Art,
Praxis Art Actuel, and of the multidisciplinary group The Precambrians.
