Angelique Lafreniére has dedicated her life to art. As a child, her grandfather taught her the how to weld, paint and work with wood and her grandmother taught her how to work with fibres, fabric and make costumes. Lafreniére graduated in 1999 with a diploma in Interior Design from the International Academy of Design and received a BFA in painting from OCAD University, Toronto, in 2008. In 2012, Lafreniére won the Visual Elements 54: Annual Juried Exhibition Juror’s Choice Award. Her recent bold, large abstract paintings are a true explosion of colour and energy.
