Nicole St-Pierre
NICOLE ST-PIERRE

BIOGRAPHY

Born in 1953, self-taught Montréaler Nicole St-Pierre has been painting for nearly 30 years, drawing her inspiration from everyday life: the people, plants, animals and familiar objects that surround her. While St-Pierre is well known for her female nudes, circus artists, musicians and vivid still lifes, allegorical animals are making their way onto a growing number of canvases. Her palette, rich and colourful, favors primary and secondary colours punctuated with blacks and whites.
