Biography


Born in Levis, Quebec, I've lived in different parts of Canada and am now in Boucherville, Quebec. 

I thrive in expressing the beauty of life through my art, in urban scenes, or with musicians, dancers, or sports.

My style is of contemporary revival. It's a distinctive figurative, emotional style which emerges from capturing the dynamic of the moment, inspired by my own life experiences. I have been pushing for excellence and originality by slowly and intensively mastering this art for now three decades.

I have worked extensively at mastering oils, watercolours, inks and, yes, coffee! Watercolours have helped me develop an ability to work with momentum, since it dries so quickly! An intensive 10-year self-taught study of acrylic painting brought me to acquire spontaneity. Eventually leaving realism, I developped my own figurative style where each canvas is an impulsive challenge, with people in urban scenes, sports, musicians and dancers. I amalgamate them with intense movements, layering the pigments on canvas. I am particularly fond of red and love leaving it's rightful place for what emerges haphazardly!

My customed paintings are modern, large format which I create for individuals or businesses

My collections are in all parts of Canada, New York, Texas, Japan, France and Lebanon. My commissionned historical frescos can be seen in Municipal Centers, libraries, and a School, as well as a Montreal polycliniclinical center, the Boucherville City Hall, and through fine arts galleries such as ‘Le Bourget’ in Montreal, Québec city, Terrebonne, Ste.Julie, St.Bruno,various symposiums, museums and solo exhibitions.

Member of various art or business associations, I have been on 2 advisory art City committees, VP of the Board of AAPARS.
