Jeannette Sirois

I am a full time practicing visual artist working with colour pencil, graphite and
charcoal. I use large-scale portraits to explore issues surrounding acceptance and
rejection based on societal norms, values, cultural beliefs and ritualistic practices.
Having worked for over 20 years as an art educator, I came to portrait drawing only
recently and I continue to explore the use of portraits to discuss important issues
we see in Canada today. Having created work for public installations, gallery
exhibitions and private collections my work strives to open up important
dialogue around issues of homophobia, racism, ageism, poverty, body image and multiculturalism.
I hold a Diploma in Design, a BFA with distinctions from Concordia University in
Montreal, Art Teacher Certification and an M.Ed. from UBC.
