Always eager to meet new challenges and break down barriers, Annick Poirier has held a variety of positions in the graphic arts field over the last twenty years. Firstly as a graphic artist, then a Photoshop specialist and fashion illustrator to finally reach her full potential as an editorial and advertising illustrator, working with major magazines, ad agencies and companies – an expertise she has been exclusively focusing on for the past twelve years. Annick is also very passionate about painting, contemporary architecture, ecology, traveling/exploring, the outdoors and minimalist living. Five years ago she decided to combine all of these passions into one major project: the complete design and management of the construction of her small eco-house in the magnificent Laurentian mountain region just outside of Montreal.
