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.
