To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Just for Laughs Festival and the 375th of Montreal, I was asked to modify a dozen of artworks from the collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The presentation produced by URBANA Marketing will be accompanied by the Visual Arts Contest, which was aimed this year at kids and adolescents from 0 to 18 years old, for the benefit of Children's Wish Foundation. These creations will be shown in the exhibition hall of the Place des Arts during the festival, from 15 to 30 of July.

A lot of news for the beginning of this year. First of all, my site has been updated and is now available in both English and French. I recently got my recognition as a professional artist at RAAV; an important step that will help me reach upcoming goals.

This spring, I will also participate in 4 benefit auctions! These events are great opportunities for collectors to acquire artworks at affordable prices, while supporting good causes.
