Joz (Josette) is an artist and teacher who has dedicated her life to connecting children with nature and empowering them to create their own artistic expression.
She studied social sciences and art in France and Canada, and has traveled to all continents.
She received two special recognitions during her career: The Governor General's Award for teaching history and the Academic Palms for her career.
She has now decided to focus her activities on her own artistic production and to share her passion for nature and the people encountered during her travels on all continents, from her studio in Toronto.

"Hurry slowly, and without losing heart, twenty times on the loom, put your work back." Nicolas boileau
