If Gabrielle Grimard's style remains a little traditional, it is mostly full of poetry. She loves to be able to translate the world in which she wanted to live. She likes to work with light, points of view (or different shots) and patterns. To create an album, the research work through various media is also a step she likes. But his sweet will always stay the color. She mainly uses watercolor, gouache and oil, which she fuses together on watercolor cardboard: she appreciates the watercolor for its lightness, the gouache for the intensity of its colors and the oil for the depth that it offers and in which it dives with happiness every time. All adds a touch of pencil for details that fly in the wind! She wrote and illustrated her first album, which was published by Annick Press.
After studying Fine Arts at Concordia University, teaching arts at the University of Quebec in Montreal and a few years as a painter and muralist on the Island of Montreal, Gabrielle Grimard is more concretely moving towards illustration in 2001. In recent years, it has mainly affected youth publishing, school publishing and also a little publicity. She has worked with several Quebec publishers, including Dominique et Cie, Imagine, La Bagnole and HMH, and with Canadian publishers such as Orca Book and Annick Press, Pajama Press, Second Story Press and Scholastic.
Since 2007, she has been working with Painted-Words, a New York-based illustrator agency that gives her access to the US and UK youth publishing markets. She made albums and games.
