Born in Amos, Abitibi, Lise Massicotte attended l’Institut des arts appliqués in Montreal. She then spent some time in Alberta, continuing studies in art and photography at the University of Edmonton. A long journey, with a thousand jobs along the way, allowed her to explore different artistic media such as theatre set design, journalistic graphics and layout, and the management of an art and craft gallery.
In 1995, after twenty years of working in black and white, the exploration of colour took centre stage in the form of watercolor painting. Lise strives to break away from the rigidity of her graphic design background by exploring the fluidity and emotions in this medium.
