Marie-Claude Boucher was born in Charny, Quebec in 1973. Her interest in art began with drawing with her twin sister at an early age, and painting has since become her passion.
She studied Latin, Spanish language and French literature at McGill University, and briefly pursued a career in teaching before choosing to devote her time to painting.
Marie-Claude maintains a palette of primary and pure colours. She has developed her distinct style with the use of spontaneous and rapid brush strokes: “I am not looking for perfection in the details, but rather simplicity in my Quebec settings.”
She has chosen to focus on the rural settings of her youth where she spent all of her summers in Notre-Dame-du-Lac. Churches, red roofs, simple Quebec homes and fences are her favourite subject.
