Before she started her MFA, Amélie completed a B.A. in Visual and Media Art at the Université du Québec à Montréal and received a second BA in Social Work from Université de Montréal.

Fabrics and the function of shadows as material allow her to explore these dimensions of human relations in time and space through installation, performative actions and drawing. Her particular focus with respect to fibers addresses questions of identity, the environments, the occupation ?of space and movement. Her work has been shown in various exhibitions and events in Canada, United-States and in Europe including Switzerland, Germany, England, Finland, Lithuania and France. ?She has received grants from FQRSC (Fonds de recherche sur la science et la culture) and the Canada Council for the Arts.
