About the artist:

Dieppe artist, Isabelle Larfague, originally from St-Pierre & Miquelon, has developed a signature and highly collectable style which is renowned globally.

Passionate about the arts, culture and events organization, Isabelle studied and worked in cultural project management for over 15 years. In 2005, she discovered the art of porcelain painting and immediately became enthralled. Since that first discovery, she trained in Limoges, France, as a Ceramic Designer and in 2011 was designated “Atelier d’Art de France” in Paris.

Isabelle paints each piece by hand making it a one of a kind piece of art. She works with traditional and modern techniques and each piece is kiln fired several times between 800 and 900 degrees Celsius. Isabelle’s work is fine and delicate, designed using precious metals, fine gold and platinum.

Isabelle immigrated to Atlantic Canada in July 2012 where she settled with her family in Dieppe, New-Brunswick. She is a professional juried member of the New Brunswick Crafts Council, the Quebec Crafts Council, and the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council. Isabelle is also a member of the International Porcelain Artist and Teachers (IPAT) and The Porcelain Artist of Canada Association (PAC).

Isabelle Lafargue is also an ArtsNB and Tourism, Heritage and Culture- Government of New-Brunswick grant recipient. In 2016, she received the third “Prix de mérite” at the PAC exhibition held in Montreal.
