Loriane Thibodeau is an artist whose current base camp is on the island of Tiohtià:ke/Montréal (Québec Province, Canada), but who proudly grew up in the tiny village of Sainte-Félicité-de-L'Islet (Chaudière-Appalaches, QC). Her work is situated in a universe marked by surrealism and chaos, at the crossroads of vestiges of the past and memories to come. Holder of a Diplôme d’études collégiales (D.E.C.) in crafts - ceramics specialization and another D.E.C. in crafts - sculpture specialization (CEGEP Limoilou and Maison des métiers d'art de Québec), she also has several experiences in production and internships in Quebec province and abroad. She is currently pursuing a BFA at Concordia University. For the past 13 years, she has given various courses and workshops. She is also teaching at the CEGEP level, in Quebec City and Tiohtià:ke/Montréal.

In parallel to the questions about the contexts of visual and public arts contexts that underlie her individual practice, she pursues research with different groups of artists (Caravane BLING BLING!, Collectif En Étrive, METAcéramique). She is particularly interested in public art and works as a specialist in visual arts and crafts for the Politique d’intégration des arts à l’architecture et à l’environnement des bâtiments et des sites gouvernementaux et publics (1% Law) of the Ministère de la culture et des communications du Québec (Government of Québec). In addition, she is very involved in her community, notably by being a member of the board of directors of the Rozynski Art Centre (Way's Mills, QC).
