In the case of Pierrette Joly, painter, her privileged links with art were made at a very young age. ''I have always told myself that my life could not be without painting.'' Pierrette is a real magician with light. Her works, which are, what she calls ''figurative impressionism'', are showered with the light of day. In the paintings of Pierrette Joly, we recognize the landscapes of the Charlevoix region in Quebec - "It's my peace and inspiration refuge".
