Sophie Paquet was born in Sherbrooke, Quebec in 1963. She studied arts at Sainte-Foy College and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Laval University in 1985.
Working primarily in acrylics and oil pastels, Paquet paints dynamic florals full of vitality and joy. With a background in design she approaches her work intuitively, applying layers of bold colour and texture through gestured brushstrokes. These elements come together in an alliance of haphazard harmony.
Paquet’s paintings are held in collections across Canada and the United States.
