It is with great honor that "Curlicue" was accepted to be part of AFC's 2018-2019 tour Exhibit which ran at the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum from Sep to Nov 2018.  Even greater news is that the artwork has SOLD and a portion of the sale will be donated to northern Ontario wildlife rescue "Wild at Heart"

Colette Theriault is honoured to be the recipient of the Artists for Conservation Foundation's monthly conservation award. The AFC's Conservation Artist Award is awarded monthly to honour an AFC member for their outstanding artistic talent and extraordinary contribution to the conservation cause. At the end of each year, a past recipient of the monthly honour then has the opportunity to be considered for the annual Simon Combes Conservation Award. 
Well known for her captivating pet portraits, Colette Theriault's work is found in private and corporate collections around the globe. The fluency with which Theriault renders her endearing animal portraits is the culmination of a lifetime of study and a fascination with all things animal and their environs. Using predominantly soft pastels or graphite, the essence of her subjects is captured in a photo-realistic style. Drawn to Nature is a collection of the artist's newest works depicting her deep admiration and empathy for all living creatures.
