Early life and education[edit]

Antoinette Esmé Hérivel was born in 1943 in Shipley, England. In writing her 1996 thesis, Hérivel described her early love of art: “As a child, I had an instinctive feeling that when I was drawing, I somehow had found a way of playing in which I could become thoroughly immersed and occupied.”[2] She studied painting and arts education at Southlands College from 1961 to 1964.[1] Writing on her choice to become a teacher, Hérivel said: “My decision to become a teacher was influenced by the fact that I was able to study in London at a college in which arts played an important role.”[2] Following her education in London, Hérivel accepted a teaching position in Canada in 1967 and became a permanent resident in Regina, Saskatchewan.[1]

She continued to teach in Saskatchewan while also pursuing a higher education at the University of Regina, graduating with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing in 1986.[1]  She then received her Master of Education in 1996 also from the University of Regina.


Hérivel is heavily involved in the prairie art communities and has worked with the local Children's Theater, ArtSask[3] and CARFAC.[1] She has also served as a mentor for emerging artists.[1] She has shown her work across Canada and the United States and her art works are held in private and public collections in Canada and Great Britain.[1]


Much of her work is centered around the themes of memory, women and domesticity, imagination, and autobiography.[4]  In writing about the themes of work, Hérivel noted: “Memory is a major source of ideas in my work.  Although I refer to reference materials, I like the freedom to manipulate and play with imagination.”[2] Her exhibition “Fragmented,” from 2010 explored her and her parent’s experience and memories in Jersey during it’s occupation by the Nazi’s in the Second World War.[1]
