Lake Life Studios in the Gift Shop
Justine Goulet is the owner and primary glass artist of Lake Life Studio. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Performance Production at Ryerson University in 2012. She then moved to Dublin, Ireland for a year where she went on to earn a Masters in Philosophy of Performance Art from Trinity College in 2013.
Returning back to her home on the shores of Lake Huron, she continued working in the theatre industry until she discovered the art of glass fusing. Justine was hired by Bonnie Doone Glass, a glass studio in Forest. From there, Justine developed her own style and gained renewed inspiration for writing her own story in the world of glass art.
Justine is inspired by her surroundings - our natural world and her heritage. As a Metis woman, she looks to her elders for creative energy and incorporates indigenous influences throughout her work.
When Justine isn’t at the studio, you can find her paddle boarding on Lake Huron, walking her dog Daizy, and spending time with her family and friends. She is also a volunteer energy exchange student at Inner Dawn Yoga Studio and a volunteer costal watcher for The Lake Huron Centre for Costal Conservation.
