Sylvie Cloutier was born in St-Hyacinthe, Quebec, Canada, in 1957. She has always been drawn to painting, the visual arts in general, which will lead her to pursue graduate studies in Fine Arts at the University. Concordia, UQAM and the University of Montreal. An art teacher in federal prisons at the secondary level, represented in galleries since 1985, she continues her research on geometric shapes in space. Strongly influenced during his studies by Kandinski, Riopelle’s stencils and Paul Klee’s colors, by Braque’s collages or by all the other great masters who will remain an extraordinary reference for the artist, Sylvie Cloutier has not stopped drawing and painting, alongside teaching and giving creativity workshops for adults.
