Bio: In 1980, at 42 years old, Horace Champagne left a successful business life in commercial art and advertising behind him to devote himself full time to art.
Educated in Montréal, Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Ottawa School of Art, and in the U.S.A. with Charles Movalli, and Daniel Green. Now living on Ile d'Orléans, Québec.
Media: Pastel.
Subjects: Landscapes, Still Life and Interiors.
Style: Richly coloured representational.
Navigation: Bi-lingual site. Choose between English and French on index page. Main menu remains available on all pages. A really nice site, its only flaw being lack of data on dimensions of original painting in the English-accessed galleries. However, the big surprise is that the paintings accessed via the French version are almost totally different from those in the English site - there is very little overlap. I'm glad I checked! And in the French galleries, dimensions are given. How mischievous, Mr Champagne!
Gallery: Landscapes, Newfoundland, Rockies, Still Life, Street Scenes, Studio
