Gaetanne Lavoie was raised in a family that celebrated individuality and following your bliss. She received her BFA from York University in Toronto, an MFA from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco and a second MFA from the New York Academy of Art in New York City. Lavoie recently moved back to Canada and has exhibited her paintings nationally and internationally.
