Gilles Rheaume


After an excessive time consuming career at a think tank, I resumed my artistic journey as a painter when my wife and I moved to the County from Ottawa/Gatineau more than four years ago. My passion for acrylic and oil painting was reignited when I started exploring my new surroundings, meeting artists and going to local art galleries.

I am mostly self-taught although I took some classes at the Ottawa School of Art and attended some workshops. Over the years I learned from art books, and going to numerous special art exhibits and art galleries in Canada, Europe and Asia, always observing how artists crafted their masterpieces. I now have a studio in Wellington where I spend time on my own art.

In each of my works I always strive to tell a story or create mood while experimenting with different styles and subject matters. The latest project that I am working on is called "Dunes and Boat Trilogy", three paintings of the same subject, each having its own style and mood.
