Madeleine Guenette was born in Sudbury, Ontario. She moved to Nelson, British Columbia in 1989 to teach French Immersion in Trafalgar middle school. Her love and passion for photography has allowed her to explore the fine nuances of nature with its various moods, shapes, shades and colours. Water is a favorite subject because of its ever changing properties. Living in the West Kootenay is her playground and her inspiration; it is a paradise for photography.
