Art in a Feminine Perspective
A woman of heart! My first impression upon meeting Sonia Reid, an artist who followed an unusual career path. Radiant smile, as beautiful as any model, this charming, passionate and riveting woman warmly welcomes me as we meet in Québec’s Galerie Baron-Lafrenière on this first nice day of spring.
Author, lecturer, painter, Sonia Reid is a woman of many talents. Born in Québec City in 1973, she lived a happy childhood in Notre-Dame des Laurentides with her parents and her two sisters. Most of her family members work in the field of education. Her father was a teacher in the maritime sector. Thus, she wasn’t born into a family where artistic values were omnipresent.
During her youth, Sonia Reid is rather Cartesian, very organized and very athletic. She is interested in mathematics, which leads her to pursue studies in mechanical engineering at Laval University. She later obtains her master’s degree in project management at Université du Québec in Trois-Rivières.
