Artist profile

Hélène Fleury, Here is my hand
This is my right hand

    Helene Fleury was born in 1959. Drawing, sculpting and creations of all sorts have always been a natural necessity for her. Believing in the importance of mastering the techniques before acceding to a true liberty in the making of the artwork, she interupted her studies in visual arts at Laval University in Québec city to learn from professional portraitists, how to observe, percieve the subject, the vibration of forms and colors and how to use the most efficient manner to express it, considerations that where missing in the conceptual teaching.

   Portrait on command, the foundation of her entreprise Atelier Dufaux, teaching, large scale works as the coordination and artistic direction of working sites for monumental murals and sculpture brought her a vast polyvalency in technics and methods and gave her the possibility to accomplish a wide variety of artworks.

   She is mostly renound for her monumental murals in Québec city and Sherbrooke. Since a few years, she works avidly on sculpting and painting in her studio and exposes in galleries.
