Biography from Waddington's:
Born in 1956, Quebec native Hélène Labrie studied Graphic Design at the Université de Laval from 1975 to 1977.   It was while there that she was mentored by Claude A. Simard, who taught her the necessity to justify each line in her drawings and recognized the sculptor in her.  Labrie discovered ceramics quite by chance when she met up with her father at a pottery class he was taking.   She was seduced by the calm atmosphere of the workshop and was inspired to take a course in clay technology in Montreal.   Her talent was evident immediately and she was offered an exhibition at the municipal library in Ste. Foy in 1979, where her sculptures caught the eye of Robert Lapalme, caricaturist for the daily Le Devoir, and founder of the Museum of Humour in Montreal.   He was so impressed by her talent that he offered to exhibit her works in the lobby of the museum.  Her career as a sculptor soared from that point on.

Labrie has participated in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally since 1979, and her sculptures are included in prominent private and public collections throughout Canada.  Labrie lives in Quebec City, Quebec.
