Born in Montreal, Quebec (Canada), Joanne Brouard completed her studies in visual arts at Cégep de Rivière-du-Loup following a career in communications in Quebec and Ontario. Her work has been presented at several solo and group exhibitions, and is included in permanent and private collections. She received an award for the Abstract Painting category at the Expo-concours de La Prairie, and is a recipient of the People's
Choice Award at the Centre d'arts visuels in Magog, where she lives and works.
Brouard uses a combination of traditional art practices and technological tools to
express her perception of space, a topic that has preoccupied her since childhood.
Her work evokes the intimacy and space sought after (or lack thereof) in restrictive environments. They reveal an emotional buildup in reaction to the imaginary
walls of our society, such as education, work, marriage, sexism, and other "isms."
