Daniel Brunet was born in Sainte-Anne de Bellevue Quebéc, 1952. His father was a musician, his mother a craftswoman; both encouraged him to develop his artist creativity.During his childhood, Brunet learned the piano, organ, saxophone and clarinet. He often found himself drawing on his sheet music. Brunet later used these rough sketches as aids for his first attempts with oil paint.
Today, Brunet works with oil paint on board or canvas. He captures the rural landscape of Charlevoix Québec in a recognizable style: his use of shadow and light render calm, backgrounds with glimpses of life. Subdued homes scattered across hillsides; zestful skies with whispes of cloud.
Brunet has been exhibiting since 1988. Recently, his work has been showcased at Maison O’Connel, Centre cultural de Pierrefonds and Auberge de now Aïeux. In addition to exhibiting, Brunet hosts a biannual painting workshop in Charlevoix.
