Sonia Reid

From the Heart

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.  Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.

Nathalie Lapointe

The Art of Breaking Free

Art in a Feminine Perspective

Into the black waters that surround the city, gleaming towers and buildings spread their shimmering reflections. Splitting the darkness, powerful and vivid colours translate the pulse of urban life and all its trepidations.

This atmospheric luminosity permeates Nathalie Lapointe’s body of work. Stark contrasts and imaginary cities have become, for the painter, a prescription against the mad dash of life.

The artist, a native of Lanaudière, ended her eleven years career as a teacher to dedicate herself to art. “I love people and I loved working with children, but my passion for painting was calling me.”Her perilous jump into the unknown came after serious consideration, fuelled by a strong desire to set her own life path.
