Martine Côté

Artist member since 2019
Toronto, Ontario

Born in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, 1981.

Martine seeks to capture quiet beauty found in the everyday light.

She completed her studies in saxophone at Conservatoire de musique de Québec before achieving a bachelor's degree in business in Canada and France that opened her to the world of communications where she developed a critical eye vis-a-vis the image and the message. Photography is a natural continuation.

Côté lives and creates in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
