Renard, Anne

Born in France in 1943, Anne has been living and working in Quebec since 1988.
Anne Renard comes from an artistic environment: her father is a physician, a poet and a musician. Her brothers and sisters are sculptors and painters. Her profession as a decorator was not artistically fulfilling so three years later, she entered l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, then in Avignon, being among great sculptors such as César, Gardone and many others.

“In thirty years of creation, there has been despair, lack of trust, anger and many other abnegation as any artist may feel. Despite the inner turmoil, it has been impossible to surrender. Today, there is no aggressiveness, no suffering into my bronze sculptures, only happiness and welfare ensue from them. Dreams… don’t we all need to dream!”
