Cendrine Marrouat: Hello Lu, thank you for answering my questions. Is there a particular event that triggered your desire to become a painter?
Lu Robitaille: My uncle was an artist. I remember as a child enjoying every minute watching him paint in his little studio. My husband was not fond of me doing crafts, encouraging me to paint like him. He and my aunt spent a weekend with us at our Island home and he too encouraged me to paint. His visit with us inspired him to paint and finish eight pieces of which he signed the night before he died. I knew then, that fate was calling me to continue in his footsteps.
