Born in Québec City’s Limoilou, Diane Brunet’s childhood playground was no more than the alleys of her neighbourhood. Long after her rational career choice, she decided to fulfil a long-time secret dream by getting a degree in creative writing.  By a trick of her creative mind, writing as well as leading poetry workshops progressively led her to the visual arts, with watercolour as her preferred medium.

For ten years, her abundant production was exhibited in and around Quebec City.

Then in 2006, a chance exploration of oil painting with the knife was for her an epiphany!  Her newly-kindled passion for this medium was immediately rewarded at the 13th

St-Germain-de-Kamouraska symposium blessing her with the confidence to continue.  Weather permitting, Diane prefers painting outside, in the field, but she also appreciates the freedom to access the paths of her imagination provided by her quiet studio

in her home. Always on the move, she travels with her sketchbook.

Since 2013, she offers workshops and demonstrations in watercolor, desiring above all,

pass on this passion.


She participates in numerous art shows, solos and group exhibits in Quebec

and in Europe. Diane loves salmon fishing; to bring in great catches, she draws

from the same patience as to find the right color for her painting. Forever inspired

by her need for expression, her art reflects her personal traits: warmth, passion, sensitivity, cheerfulness.  She likes what she does and it shows.
