Andrée has always drawn, sculpted or painted, always, all the time. Nevertheless, for more than thirty years she worked in the movie and television milieu as an actress, screenwriter and director and as a network executive. Over the past few years though, Andrée has returned to her first love: the visual arts. Aside from painting and sculpting she has been working on iPad, creating extremely detailed pieces produced in very large formats.
As an actress she has performed in over twenty films, both across Canada and abroad, as well as performing on stage. Her career led her to live for extended periods of time in New York, Los Angeles and Paris.
Her multiple screenplays often featured strong feminine characters, namely in the television series Blanche, co-written with her sister Louise. Blanche broke ratings records and won several international awards.
Her works in the visual arts reflect her fascination with portraits, for faces that seem to emanate from nowhere I-don’t-know-where, through the the magic of the digital. “Two eyes, a nose, a mouth… How can those three elements, always the same, have so many variations? I mentally take note of the shape of the nose of my interlocutor, remembering the shadow under the eyebrow, the philtrum…like elements of a map with valleys and mountains that reflect emotion through a simple line.”
