France-Marie’s art is a dialogue with the canvas. The lines come from her inner life (emotions and subconscious). Inner peace acquired through meditation and Tai Chi fuels the process. She is inspired by the works of abstract expressionist artists, and, like them, embraces total freedom of expression. She says it is art of the soul not intellectual cogitation. It engages the viewers’ creativity by giving them freedom of interpretation.

Since her first solo exhibit in 1998, France-Marie’s work has not ceased to raise enthusiasm from contemporary art lovers. Subsequent solo and group shows in Ottawa, Toronto, London (Ontario), Montréal and in the USA (Wisconsin and New Hampshire) have allowed a wider public to enjoy her vibrant artistic expression.

Mon abre by France-Marie Trépanier.


Il a survécu les affres de la vie. La création des meilleurs fruits a continuellement été
son point d’horizon. Au milieu de la tempête qui lui arrachait des branches, il baissait la
tête et tenait coup. Il a toujours refusé d’abdiquer. Dorénavant, planté avec dignité au
milieu du vignoble, il admire sa descendance avec fierté.

Cet arbre c’est moi.
