France was born and raised in a small community in northern Ontario. Hearst was a vibrant, rustic, isolated place that inspired her art. France was educated partly in Ontario at Laurentian University, where she obtained her bachelor's degree in sociology and education. Then, loving adventure, France headed to Nova Scotia to study at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, better known as NSCAD University. She graduated in spring 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Textiles.


Her passion for textiles didn't begin in 2011, but when she was just two years old. Her mother gave her a crochet hook with wool for fun while she knitted stockings for the rest of the family. She always had a textile project on her bedside table, dreaming up new techniques for making fashion art. Her home economics teacher, Mme Delorme, was already commissioning her work at the beginning of high school. It was in the early 1990s that her greatest dream came true when she met the people who would influence her direction in the textile field. Régine Mainberger and Louise Bérubé, the two directors of the workshop school affiliated with Cégep du Vieux Montréal, taught her a host of new textile techniques. She obtained a DEC in textile construction, specialized in computer-assisted textile design.


Since then, her creations have developed into a small collection of accessories inspired by the texture of the bark of photographed trees. These majestic trees from all corners of the world fascinate her and never cease to give her new ideas for her textile art.
