Nathalie Boissonnault was born in 1968 in New Richmond on the Gaspé Coast. Attracted to the arts from childhood, she registered for her first painting course at 11 years of age and painted her first canvas.
A graphic artist by training, she nevertheless followed through on her natural penchant for painting and held her first exhibit in 1992. At that time, she was working as a graphic artist and cartographer at the Department of Natural Resources. In 2001 the desire to live fully the freedom offered by painting became stronger and stronger. She then made the giant leap to quit her job and devote all her time to painting.
Nathalie Boissonnault’s work has gone through several transformations. Today to a certain extent, she is returning to her roots where she explores a more intimate universe, sometimes surrealist. Introspective, she establishes a dialogue between two realities, emotional and timeless, full of theatricality and poetry. Using powerful symbols, she orients the viewer to her or his own internal dialogue.
