Simone Hudon (1905-1984)

Born in Quebec City in 1905, Simone Hudon-Beaulac studied at the École des Beaux-Arts, Quebec, under H. Ivan Neilson (for etching) and Lucien Martial (for drawing, painting and decoration) and won prizes and medals and her diploma in the spring of 1931. Later that year she was appointed teacher of drawing at that that school, and eventually also became an instructor in perspective and decoration there.

During her life, Hudon-Beaulac had numerous exhibitions of her works, including her watercolours, engravings and paintings, in shows held in United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. She also completed an album of 36 striking and finely crafted etchings, Au fil des Côtes de Québec, each of which was accompanied by a poem that she also wrote, for the Quebec provincial government in collaboration with the Centennial Commission of 1967.  A member of the Canadian Society of Graphic Artists, she lived primarily in Quebec City, but died in Montreal in 1984.
