Self-taught artist Manon Farmer briefly attended the École des beaux-arts de Montréal in 1976. In addition to portraiture, paintings and music, her work comprises various forms of sculpture: effigies; low-relief medallions; statuettes, including that of the main character from the novel l’Homme qui plantait des arbres (The Man Who Planted Trees); emblems, including the insignia of the 22nd Regiment of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police; and busts, such as those of the founders of the Cook medical centre in Trois-Rivières. She has shown her work in Quebec, Toronto and Toulouse, France, where she participated in the 1992 Salon of the Association Pluriel des Artistes du Volvestre.
