Michel LeRoux was born on June 28, 1950, into a family that viewed creativity as a means of expression and livelihood. Michel’s father, a lettering artist, often sought his son’s assistance, and thus introduced Michel to the world of art.
Since 1981, oil painting had provided a treasured escape for Michel. The world of plants and the emotion he felt in the forest had always fascinated Michel, which he sought to convey on canvas. Michel Le Roux held his first exhibition in 1985, as part of the 5th Festival International des Arts de Montréal. This event launched his career. Collectors soon flocked to his work and the artist found strong motivation in this demand. He quickly sought to improve his work and adopted a new artistic discipline.
