Multidisciplinary artist endowed with a bountiful imagination and trained at the Fine Arts Faculty of the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQÀM), Anne-Marie Chagnon explores materials instinctively. She invents, shapes and sculpts exclusive pieces, as prevailing as they are timeless. Her conviction: being your true self is remarkable.
Her creations convey that energy which also emanates strongly from the women who wear them. For over twenty years, she has had the passion to create an original collection every year in order to prolong this privileged history of emotions and authenticity with materials and with women.
Indeed, countless peers from the creative circles recognize the depth of her artistic approach and the high-quality expertise, including Le Cirque du Soleil that solicited her to create exclusive and branded jewellery for a decade.
From her first participation at the BIJORHCA PARIS trade show, the artist jewellery was awarded with the Étoile de Mode. In New York, her jewellery was selected by Iris Apfel, style and fashion icon, to be included in the collection of artwork sold at the Peabody Essex Museum - a choice shared by the curators of more than forty prestigious museums in North America. In 2015, following a few multidisciplinary exhibits in Canada and abroad, the artist held her first solo painting exhibit.
Anne-Marie Chagnon jewellery, unique and unparalleled, is created and crafted at the Montreal studio and available across five continents. By placing the quest for authenticity at the heart of her work, she has succeeded in creating a distinctive signature, local yet internationally renowned.
Social pressure is strong. I fit in, but not at the expense of my personality. I claim my right to be different and to declare my difference. Sometimes I upset people, but I always express and assert myself. I have the passion to invent adornments to make you as strong and remarkable as you are, confident and proud.
