France Marcotte

A Life of Art and Passion


“The most beautiful of jobs is living off one’s passion.” – François Salvat de Montfort

Twenty-seven years ago, France Marcotte was, rather matter-of-factly, visiting an art gallery when she suddenly fell in love with a Normand Hudon painting. It depicted a priest enjoying himself while sliding down a snowy slope with children.

“I had a big smile on my face,” fondly recalls France Marcotte, still under the charm of her first artwork acquisition. “It was all just perfect, including the respectful attitude of the gallery owner while he declared his contagious admiration for Normand Hudon’s creation. I had no knowledge about art. I started reading Magazin’Art and hastily visiting galleries.
