Josée grew up in Châteauguay, Quebec and from a young age she has always loved and appreciated the arts. She went on to earn two bachelor degrees at the University of Quebec, one in Animation and Cultural Research followed by an Education degree. She then completed her Masters in Education at Sherbrook University. 

In her spare time Josée loves to create. She has dabbled in many different forms of art over the years, but has recently found her true passion with felting. She has taken several classes and workshops and she truly loves the physical process of felting. It is a three dimensional art, with wool, texture and colours. At first she made hats, tuques and scarves and then developed something absolutely unique: felt murals.


 

Her artistic style for creating murals is just like her personality: cheerful, naive, fantastic and colourful. With each mural, Josée creates a narrative to go with it to further enhance the piece. It is a new art, a breath of fresh air.

Her first collection was inspired by women from around the world, and was presented at her first exhibit in November 2019 at “La galerie le 1040” in Montreal. The show was a huge success, as she sold 12 of the 14 pieces. Since then she has exhibited at the following shows: 

2022 Parallax Art Fair, London UK 

2022 The New Art Festival, Ottawa

2021 Salon des métiers d’art du Quebec, Montreal 


Josée currently works full-time as an elementary school teacher in Montreal.
