St Gilles studied in Ste Foy where he obtained a diploma in Aesthetic Presentation, he also began painting at a young age and was tutored by Arthur Genest, Paul Brien Mario Mauro and Bruno Côté. He first attracted attention with his watercolors and later by his oil paintings on canvas which he continues to this day.
At the early age of 23, St Gilles holds his first solo exhibition, and his career is well underway as he has penetrated the Montreal market as early as 1981. Since then the artist has held over 25 solo exhibitions throughout Canada.
Today as before St Gilles has maintained his place as one of the most influential painters of natural settings and landscapes of his generation. Appreciated as a colorist, this lover of nature has continued his mission to capture the natural beaty that this country has to offer.
