Francine Migner was born in Montreal and studied at Université de Montréal where she obtained a Bachelor degree in Arts and Literature in 1991.

As a teenager, she discovered Van Gogh's paintings in a wide exhibition presented in a Museum. Following this experience, she decided she would become a painter. But it is much later that she had the great chance to meet a very special teacher, Frère Jérôme, who would be not only her mentor but also her best example of art discovery. Furthermore, she attended art school in university and some printing studios.

She participated in many art nature events and realized in situ installations. Her most recent solo exhibition was held in May 2007 at the Centre d'exposition du Vieux Presbytère de Saint-Bruno. In September 2005, she was invited by the Musée d'art contemporain des Laurentides, Saint-Jérôme, to create a work on the theme : Imagine un musée; with the use of Plexiglas and recycled objects, she created her own museum called Le musée de la transparence. As a painter, recycling is a source of endless inspiration while she recycles earlier works and different supports like paper, canvas, transparent films, etc.

Among the artist run centers where she was involved, she acted as president of Praxis art actuel from 1999 to 2001 and was administrator of Action Art Actuel during the same years.

Within the Quebec's Government's program Artists at School, she has been invited in many different regions since 1997.

Her artwork can be found in private, public and corporate collections such as Loto-Québec, Pratt & Whitney Canada , Caisses Desjardins. In June 2007, her work Hommage à Molière was jury selected and purchased by the City of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu as part of the city's new cultural policy to promote the arts.
