LAVIGNE, Céline (1953)

With a BA in graphic design (1976) and a Certificate in education sciences (1985) from the Université du Québec à Montréal, Céline Lavigne spent several years working in education and publishing while also exploring sculptural techniques in clay, casting and cold work with glass. She has been devoted exclusively to her career as an artist, particularly as a sculptor, since 1998. In 2009, Lavigne received an honourable mention for a piece entitled Vénus rose at the Rencontre des Arts in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. In 2011, she became a member of the collective L’ÂME-ART (in Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood) and has been exhibiting her work ever since at both its gallery and the Musée des maîtres et artisans du Québec. She often combines clay and glass in her colourful and whimsical miniature creations.
