Born in Montreal, Joëlle Le Blanc has completed stoneware and porcelain engraving and painting stages in various Montreal workshops since 1979. In 1991, she began practising engraving at the Evelyne-Dufour workshop in Montreal. Also a drawer she masters dry-point, etching and lithography. She held solo and group exhibitions in Quebec and in the United States. She is a member of several associations including the Quebec Arts Trade Committee and the Quebec Engraving Committee.

An excellent drawer who is influenced by hyperrealism, she is particularly fond of black and white contrasts and has developed an inking technique that allows her to emphasise contrasts and better her subject’s outline. She often touches up her engravings so that, in fact, most of them are unique.
