Louise Mignault is an award winning film & television makeup artist from Montreal working with the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Halle Berry, Tyrese Gibson and Genevieve Bujold to mention a few. She retired from the film business in 2010 when she met her husband and moved to their 27-acre hobby farm on the outskirts of Cornwall, Ontario.
Up until recently, her “canvas” always talked and moved. She has transferred her love of live faces and bodies to the vibrant medium of batik after taking her first class with batik artist & teacher Jenn Raby.
Makeup was an “I love it” experience from the very beginning when she worked on her first theater production as assistant makeup artist at the age of 19. Batik was the same. Two days into the course she was hooked. A week later she was fully equipped.
Louise divides her time between organic gardening, renovating a 200-year old farmhouse with her husband and doing batik.
She has begun exhibiting her work through the Focus Art Association in Cornwall at two Focus Art Juried shows in 2014 and at The Art Gallery in Cornwall in 2014.
She won first and second prizes for her Batiks at the Focus Art Juried Show in 2015.
She has recently shown works at 2 shows in the Art Vallarta gallery in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. “Fearless Fridas” show in January 2016 and currently “Romance in the Stone” show from February 2016.
