Pascale Ouellet

Pascale Ouellet (Bigoudi)


Pascale – pen name Bigoudi – is a Canadian artist whose work is inspired by the world around her: the Rockies, the prairies, and the people. She uses her art to dialogue about the human impact on the land and animals around us. Prior to moving to Alberta, she completed a two-year diploma (DEC) at Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf in Fine Arts and Communications and attended the Visual Arts Program at the Université du Québec à Montréal. Since moving to Alberta, she has continued to pursue opportunities to grow – participating in artist residencies, attending lectures, and teaching when time allows. Since 2004, she has held 27 solo exhibitions, participated in almost 40 juried group shows across Canada, and been awarded three public art commissions by the town of Canmore. She has also participated in four artist residencies at The Banff Centre for the Arts and was selected as a 2015 artist-in-residence with TRACS program on Fogo Island in Newfoundland.
