Marie-Claude Marquis is multidisciplinary artist based in Montréal, Canada. Touching both graphic design and visual arts, she is inspired by souvenirs, nostalgia, pop culture, Québec identity, and her own emotions which she expresses with a feminine touch and a colorful sensitivity.
In her gallery work, Marie-Claude has mastered the art of re-appropriation in giving found objects new meaning. That way she can give these objects a second life, prolong their existence and reduce her own environmental impact. Mainly through typographical interventions, she always finds a way to give new meanings to these antiques. The result of her work is often humorous, sometimes irreverent, but always keeps a big focus on aesthetics.
At the entrepreneurial level, Marie-Claude is also the creator of Merci Bonsoir a line of products which she conceptualizes, illustrates, and designs. Creating mostly stationery, accessories, games, and home goods, her line is sold in more than 35 Canadian boutiques and on her own online store.
