Artist Description

Born in Quebec City in 1933, Michele Drouin now resides in Montreal.

She received her MFA in art education at Sir George Williams University in Montreal, and her BFA in art education at the School of Fine Arts in Montreal.

Michele Drouin is one of Canada’s leading contemporary abstract painters. Her painting is characterized by energetic drawing and dramatic contrasts of light and dark. Her use of pigment mixed with mica or steel dust add a mineral aspect to the painting, which combined with her vibrant palette, gives an overflowing fluidity to the canvasses.

Drouin’s work can be found in important Canadian Collections such as The Bank of Canada, General Electric Canada and IBM.

She has exhibited in France, The United States, England, Tunisia, and in most major cities in Canada.

The Academy gave me a wonderful opportunity to be in contact with artists from coast to coast. I particularly appreciated the sharing experience provided by our meetings and the long term relationship and friendship developed with some of the Academy members.
