Louise Houde was born in Quebec in 1946. In 1961-1962, she went to Scotland, then to France to study painting. Returning to Quebec in 1963, she enrolled at the École des beaux-arts de Québec and studied with the painter Albert Rousseau. With the idea of perfecting her art, she went to Japan in 1972 and to France in 1975.
Louise Houde is known for her still lifes and semi-abstract landscapes. His paintings are distinguished by the use of a pronounced black line which encircles the shapes or defines the space, depending on the work.
