Liliane Monette has been painting watercolours since 1986. She creates her artworks by painting directly outside or from photographs.

While working during the daytime, Liliane honed her art techniques by taking courses in painting at the Université du Québec à Montréal, in graphic arts at Cégep Ahuntsic and in watercolours at Cégep Rosemont. During that time, she explored the world of both abstract and realism painting. For Liliane, painting has always been and still is a means of both intellectual and physical expression, and it is this passion that has allowed her to find her “voice,” grow and achieve her potential.

She began her career as an artist by painting oils and acrylics, but in 1986, discovered her all-consuming passion for watercolours during a workshop with watercolourist Jacques Hébert.

After all these years as an artist, she still has this quenchless thirst for learning and improving. Landscapes, portraits, and still lifes are all subjects that reflect her need for diversity and freedom in her approaches. For Liliane, doing watercolours is an immense pleasure, and one that she wishes to share with others.
