Lyse Collin Marsan was born in Quebec City (Quebec) in 1947.

She first studied in private and public workshops. Over time, she paints, draws, teaches, colors and refines her backdrop. In 1991, painting took hold and she decided to devote herself entirely to it. A window then opens onto Europe where she has exhibited regularly since the end of the 1990s. Lyse is not one to remain indifferent to what surrounds her; his artistic journey bears witness to his great sensitivity and is part of each period of his life. Moreover, following a deep reflection on the disaster of antipersonnel mines, a need for calm and meditation led her to create a series of works where pigment powder and gold leaf make a euphoria of colors burst forth. harmonized with delicacy and sensitivity on a perfectly orchestrated background. In her own way, Lyse pays homage to life. His works, embellished with hand-written poems, proclaim love and transport us to the wonderful world of the imagination.

His active and prolific career gives him access to the highest levels of the artistic world. In 1999, Lyse exhibited at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris. Even today, he is credited with several honorary awards, mentions and exhibitions around the world.
