My 'nom de plume' is Bigoudi and although my native province of Quebec has shaped the person I am, my adoptive Alberta has shaped the artist I became. Back in Quebec, I have attended the Visual Arts Program at the Université du Québec à Montréal after completing a two-year diploma (DEC) at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf in Fine Arts and Communications. Since moving to Alberta, I have been largely self-directed in my artistic pursuits - participating in artist-residencies, attending lectures by international artists, and teaching when time allows. Since 2004, I have held 19 solo exhibitions in Alberta galleries, participated in more than 25 juried group shows across Canada, and been awarded two Public Art Commissions by the Town of Canmore.
