Ketsia Lessard was born in Montreal in 1983. Exposure to biblical symbolism early in life had a lasting influence on her imagination. She pursued studies in arts and literature and graduated from the University of Quebec with a creative writing degree in 2006. Illustration was always part of her writing process, and she took up painting in 2005. Her vocational studies in floristry taught her the principles of asymmetrical balance she would come to apply in her art. Mainly self-taught, Ketsia Lessard combines realism and symbolism to create detailed acrylic paintings that illustrate Bible verses and spiritual experience.
