Francine Laurin was born in Ste-Scholastique, Mirabel, Québec. She graduated in Fine Arts and in Psychology from the University of Québec in Trois-Rivières. She did additional training in sculpture and glass at the Art Foundry Bourassa in St-Robert, Québec.

Francine Laurin expresses herself through painting and sculpture. She works in various media: bronze, blown-glass, polished metal, cement, resin, clay and acrylic. Being herself of Native American origin and having been married to a Native American Micmac, her art naturally illustrates her Native American roots. She says that her Amerindian roots are the reason why she is fascinated by the innate spirituality of Amerindian people. For Francine, harmony with nature is a sign of divine perfection. It is with love for Mother Earth and its creatures that she creates these images which depict the union between the one who exists and the one who shares the sacred circle of life.

Each of the artist’s images was inspired by a special thought that she shares with us. She places it in our heart, so that each of us may live in abundance and peace.

Live each of her images with meditation… as they are her gift to each of us.

The artist was the winner of the Best Project Award for the creation of a trophy for the « Business of the Year » Gala, MRC Maskinongé, Québec, in 1990.
