Transcription


Well officially for sure I did four years at university, from 1972 to 1976. After I graduated there was the former Acadie Nou…it was named L’Évangéline at the time, which had spaces for studios, and Roméo Savoie had a studio on the third floor that he let me use for a couple of months. That’s what really started me, let’s say, it launched me in a career as an artist, wanting to do art full time. So I painted and painted, and then managed to get some exhibitions and showed my work anywhere I could. Anyone who said yes, we would put up a painting. That’s when I really started. So officially it would be from 1977 to the present day.
