Meet the artist

I’m Marie-Michèle Desmarais.  I grew up near a Zoo, where my parents would take me everyday for a morning stroll. My mother would prepare an orange for the elephants 🐘 that would come to meet us because they recognized the stroller from far away.

Today I quit my speech language pathology profession to live of my passion:
Help you to add some life into your nest!

With my charcoals :
I Capture the cuteness 🐼 and the magnificence 🦌 of the animal world.

I Share with you this intimate connexion to nature🌱 .

I give back to earth by planting a tree 🌳 for each print sold and two trees 🌳🌳 by canvas sold.

LE NID atelier collaborates with La Fondation du Zoo de Granby ❤

Le Nid atelier offers an exclusive collection in collaboration with La Fondation du Zoo de Granby.

I created 5 original charcoal works representing 5 endangered species.

The original works were auctioned off in June 2022 to benefit the Fondation du Zoo, whose mission is conservation, research and education projects.

From now on, the works are available as art prints ❤️ 25% of the profits will be donated to La Fondation du Zoo de Granby.
