As a visual artist, Émilie took part in nearly 40 group or solo exhibitions. She is notably a member of many artist-run centres in Québec, in Ontario as well as arts and culture related associations. She is a professional artist. Her artistic approach is currently mainly oriented towards alternative photography processes.

“Alternative photography processes for me are about having a lot of satisfaction in the process and learning. These processes make me very fragile, because experimenting is a very emotional, personal and spontaneous experience.”
