Support to the Arts Community

Mr. Guilbault made a showing of his Napoleonic Series artwork to support the activities of the Par le vent theater company for their presentation of Madame Sans-Gêne (2009).

Training and Evolution

For six years (1996-2002) Mr. Guilbault studied oil painting with Jeanine McCrea, professional painter and had coaching workshops with Anne Drouin (2001, 2009) and with Carole Bonneau (2008).

He has had the opportunity of traveling in North America and in Europe. This has been instrumental in his acquiring his unique mastery of subject, light and tones. He lived in Ireland for a year and the close contact with the Celtic culture and its artists and artisans helped his artwork mature. Wherever he went and goes, whether this be La Ville Lumières, Provence, Seattle, Virginia or his beloved Quebec, he stops, looks, sketches and creates.

This translates in his artwork by colours that are emotion-driven, subjects that portray the habitat of today and yesteryears.
