Manon Gauthier . Children’s Illustrator and Painter

December 7, 2011

Montreal native Manon Gauthier is a self- taught illustrator and painter who studied graphic design and worked in that field for more than ten years.  In 2006, after experiencing the joy of illustrating her first children’s book, she decided to devote herself to books for young people. Since then, Gauthier has illustrated a dozen books for Canadian and European publishers.

She has won several important prizes and nominations for her work, among them, two nominations for the Governor General’s Literary Awards (illustration), Canada’s most prestigious annual literary prize. As a member of the Quebec illustrators’ association, Illustration Québec, Gauthier has participated in group exhibitions nationally and internationally.

She is also involved in a Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications’ program called Culture in the School, which was designed to ensure that the cultural dimension is integrated into classroom and school activities, and to promote careers in the arts. She regularly leads art workshops for children at the preschool, elementary and secondary school levels.

There is more work on her blog and Etsy Store.  Such a quirky beautiful style, more please Manon !.

    Manon Gauthier is wonderful. One of my favourite illustrations. Met her a few times – she’s friendly and charming (and humble). Good post!
