Born in 1963 in Forestville on the North Shore, Marielle Robichaud

was initiated into the arts from childhood. Dance, singing, painting, drawing,

enamels, pottery, sewing, guitar and figure skating occupy her time

during her youth. Recipient of an Art instruction Schools scholarship, she moved to Montreal in 1981 and obtained a Diploma from Lasalle College in Fashion Design. In 1990, she opened her workshop where she creates clothes and stage costumes.


Along with her work as a designer, Marielle Robichaud returned to painting in 1997. Since then, she continues to perfect her art with several teachers and explores various techniques.

She uses a very colorful palette and creates paintings overflowing

with vitality. Her work is presented regularly in the greater

Montreal region and the artist occasionally exhibits outside Quebec.

Her art can be found in private collections in Quebec,

New Brunswick, Ontario, the United States and Europe.

Artistic approach

“It all starts with an encounter, with an endlessly renewed look my surroundings. My inspiration has always taken its source mainly in nature and my passion for horticulture has a great influence on my work. On the other hand, I don't hesitate to wander between figuration, abstraction and portraits. Colors, patterns and textures are at the heart of my work.

I work intuitively and have a preference for square surfaces for my paintings. On big pieces, I work with layers of mixed mediums; acrylics, markers, water-colors, inks and colored pencils and oil bars. I also use collage of papers or fabrics on my creations to add rich textures. Small works are often created with inks, watercolors and color pencils.

Creating art, experimenting with mediums bring me balance and a great satisfaction. I need to use my hands to create something new. 

I have achieved my aim when my art spreads the happiness that fills me,

and when it brings to the viewer a feel of wonder and cheerfulness, hope and energy."
