Marie-France Boisvert

A native of Saguenay-Lac St-Jean, Marie-France Boisvert has over twenty years of artistic experience in painting and sculpture. Boisvert obtained her first BAC in Graphic Communication from Laval University in Quebec City in 1997 and then, in 2004, a second BIA in Sculpture from the University of Chicoutimi. Finally, in 2008, she completed her academic training with a Master's degree in Creation at the same University of Quebec. Now living in the Montreal area, Marie-France Boisvert continues her artistic approach, which has led her to exhibit her work in Canada, the United States and Europe, where she has accumulated awards, mentions and recognition from her peers.

Marie-France Boisvert’s work reflects her current state of mind, her feelings and emotions, and expresses her own interpretations of the changing face of this world. 

Through her mediums, the artist travels towards a destination she may not know but recognizes when she gets there.  Anonymous characters, children’s games, synesthesia of animal figures, Boisvert draws on metaphor to describe how people interact with each other and with their environment.  In her work, the artist stages an analogy between ephemerality and suspended time, between perception and emotion, placing the viewer as the witness of symbolic moments.
