Michèle Assal holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1984) and a Masters in Artistic Creation (1989) from the Université du Québec à Montréal. She has carried out several projects to integrate the arts into architecture, notably at Mascouche and Lavaltrie elementary schools in 1988. Best know for her two-dimensional creations, she also creates 3D works that create imaginary places that borrow from the personal, intimate universe. Transposed and transformed, these places come to resemble archetypes as they evolve from private to public space. The artist’s works can be found in several important collections, including the Collection du Prêt d’oeuvres d’art du Musée National des beaux-arts du Québec and the Canada Council Art Bank.
