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.

Hélène Caron

Allegorical Bestiary

Artist Profile

The field of dog training having long been a part of Hélène Caron’s life, it is with great sadness that she resigned herself to abandon the idea of sharing her life with an animal companion, due to allergies suffered by those close to her.

Deprived of the pleasure of interacting with either a cat or a dog, she directed her need towards the visual representation of animals, mostly of those that would not remind her of what she was missing. “It’s been a painful grieving process, since connecting with animals is essential to me. I had to find another way of having them around me.”
