Native of Sainte-Claire de Bellechasse, Paul Morissette knew from his early childhood that drawing and painting would hold an important place in his life. He drew constantly and wherever he went. He created his first painting at the age of sixteen: Le grand-père.

As a teenager, he studied fine arts at the Cégep du Vieux-Montreal and at Cégep de Sherbrooke, before choosing graphic design at Laval Université in Quebec city. During his career in graphic design in Sherbrooke, he continued exploring various mediums in visual art, experimenting with acrylics, silkscreens and watercolors.

In 2005, he was mandated to produce several frescoes and paintings representing the Eastern Townships for l’Hotel Jardins de Ville in Sherbrooke. The result was over twenty paintings and frescoes many of which can still be seen today including:
Les amoureux, Les Cantons, Papa mouton, Saint-Benoît,…


For the past two years, he has painted on a regularly basis in his own style, painting wath matter to him, the objects,  the events and characters from his memory. His work is part of a realistic world, tinged with emotions and liberty allowing him to create with passion.
