Following his expulsion from the École des beaux-arts de Québec, where she studied with Jean-Paul Lemieux, she moved to Montreal and became friends with the artists of the movement Automatiste, those same who will lead painting to abstraction.

The works of Marcelle Ferron’s works have appeared, in particular in the exhibition The Automatiste Revolution: Montreal 1941-1960, organized in 2009 by the Varley Art Gallery of Markham, in Ontario and then presented at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, United States, in 2010, as well as at the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton in 2012, and at the Mendel Art Gallery in Saskatoon , in 2013.
