I am the youngest of fourteen, born in the Eastern Townships region of Magog, Quebec. After moving to Montréal, I discovered a new passion for the arts and enrolled in to courses taught by the renown painter Frère Jérome Paradis. I developed my iconic style during four years in Paradis’ studio, “La Partance” at the Collège Notre Dame in Montréal.
In 1995, I moved to Philadelphia to launch the magazine as General Manager for Bayard Presse / Transcontinental publishing company. During this time, I also studied at the University of Pennsylvania at night where I further improved my brushwork and my the skills working with my favorite medium: acrylic paints.
In 2013 I continued my studies in Sarasota by taking additional courses at Ringling College of Art and Design.
I call Sarasota my home as well as the location of my own art studio, Studio Lacroix. My art can be easily recognized by vibrant display of colors, exuberant flowers, humorous personas, and contemporary paintings. On my canvas I express my sensibility for people and my love for nature- I am mostly inspired by naturally bright surroundings and vibrant people. I also participate in numerous art exhibits; My artwork is sold in the United States, Canada, and Europe.
I am also involved with aiding my communities through my art, partnering both with the Florida Breast Cancer Association and Selah Freedom, More Too Life, which fights sex trafficking in the United States as well as raising money for Ukraine.
