Ursula Kofahl Lampron born in Germany after the war.
I remember playing amongst the ruins. I was fascinated by
the the doll house images of entire walls missing from the apartment buildings showing empty
rooms filled with just a few pieces of the former resident’s furniture, or bathtubs and toilets
sticking out from floorless walls. I also remember my family’s turbulent voyage to America. In
America, I received my very first pencil. There and then I began my lifelong passion with art.
With my passion, I found the perfect secret place, an island of calm in an ever changing life.
In 1970 I moved to French Canada with my new husband and settled in a small French
speaking village with his parents. I learned to speak French and the ins and out of yet another
new culture. During this time we purchased a farm where I became passionately involved with
horses. Horses have been and continue to be a fundamental part of my work. All these life
changing events had a profound influence on my art.
In 2000 Ursula Lampron returned to Concordia University to fulfill a childhood ambition of studying the arts.
There she studied with Francoise Sullivan co-signer of the Manifesto,The Refus Global. She was
very instrumental in my understanding of color. I also studied with Laurent Bonet, son of the
famous Spanish artist Jordi Bonet and with him learned the techniques of the “old masters”.
Creativity and spontaneity instruction from Tania Lebedef helped to give me a well rounded art
education. In 2007 Ursula Lampron showed her horse sculptures at the Louvre, Paris, France. She has also
shown her art in Florence, Italy, New York, Florida, and Los Angeles. Ursula Lampron’s work can be found all
over the Province of Quebec, notably Baie St.-Paul, the heart of Quebec’s art world, Montreal,
and also Ontario.
I am a member of the Academie Internationale des Beaux-Arts du Quebec, where I hold the
honor of Maitre en Beaux-Arts.
