Isabelle Arsenault - Illustrator

Isabelle Arsenault

Isabelle Arsenault was born in 1978 in Sept-Iles, Quebec. After studies in Fine Arts and Graphic Design, she specialized in illustration. Quickly, she gained recognition from the industry and her peers through several awards from major international illustration contests such as Communication Arts, American Illustration and Applied Arts. In 2005, she won the prestigious Governor General's Literary Award for the illustration of her first children's book, Le Coeur de Monsieur Gauguin. Her passion for children's imaginations allows her to produce images that appeal to young readers as well as older ones. Through children's illustration she gives life to her own childhood dreams and in doing so, she hopes to inspire upcoming generations. Isabelle Arsenault now lives in Montreal, Quebec.
