Levesque has exhibited her work at various art galleries across Canada, predominantly drawing and installation art. She is the co-founder of Oxygen Art Centre’s successful children’s art camps and co-founder of SelfDesign Learning Community’s annual Art Intensives for high school youth. Levesque has spent the past nine years focused on family life, while also working as an educator and program coordinator with the SelfDesign Learning Community.

It connects us and brings great joy to our lives. By making and creating, we become problem solvers, exercising both sides of our brains. It is a celebration of beauty, a mode to express what is deep within, and a tool to better understand our place in the world.”
