boullard Illustrations
Owner/operator of Boullard Illustrations since 1974
Member of Basic Inquiry since 2004

Born and raised In Paris, I moved to Montreal in 1965 and Vancouver in 1969. Drawing and painting have been my passion since early youth. While I studied at several art schools ( Ecole des Beaux arts , Paris, in 1962 and Vancouver school of arts ,1972) my best teachers have been the artists of the Renaissance and the 19th century . I admired and copied their work all through my life. In 2013 and 2014, I completed the copies of 3 large Caravaggio as a kind of refresher course in classical painting.
In the past, I also copied Vermeer, Leonardo, Goya,and Ingres to learn from these artists..

Starting in 1974, I ran an architectural illustration studio where I honed my various skills (ink drawing, perspective, watercolour , airbrush, gouache, 3D modelling (Formz and Electric Image).
During these busy years, I mostly painted landscapes in watercolour

In 1982, I worked as a freelance court artist for CBC and the Province

Since 2004., I am a member of Basic Inquiry, a figure drawing club at 1011 main street. In this studio, I was able to focus on the human figure, watercolour and oil painting.

I am offering private classes in figure drawing, perspective, portrait,watercolour ,architectural illustration ,acrylic and oil painting.
