Marcelle Bonenfant Dubé was born in Métis-sur-mer, Quebec, in 1938. In 1975, she left the
teaching profession to devote herself entirely to painting.
Having a strong passion for history and archeology, her research has been, for the past ten years, almost exclusively based on Man, his history, the traces he left behind, his myths and beliefs. Her study of ancient worlds has influenced the textures in her work, which often resemble ancient engravings.
Another significant theme addressed by Dubé is music. Through her choice of colour and the bold energy of her brushstrokes, the artist seeks to create an equivalent to the emotion brought upon the sonority and rhythm of a symphony.
