Michel John Doucet was born in Montreal on February 28th, 1960, the eldest son of a Canadian couple. He graduated from the Electrical Engineering program from Ecole Polytechnique and completed a Master degree in Sciences. He found during his engineering studies that arts and sciences must be close in terms of thinking processes.
A self-proclaimed "museum freak", Michel Doucet visits museums and galleries all over the world. As an artist of both worldly and familiar subjects, Michel Doucet has experimented with a wide range of subjects, has studied the intricacies of various styles, and has learned from the great masters. His body of work reflects an awareness of the history of art and the artist's continuing passion for enjoying and creating that which is universally recognized as beautiful. Michel Doucet is continuously researching subjects and knowledge of painting with a wide collection of books from masters such as Rembrandt, Vermeer, Monet, Manet, Renoir, and Sargent. Studying their techniques, discovering hidden details in these chef d'oeuvres, and of course experimenting for himself, has helped him find great fun when he is painting.
His determination and pure talent brought him to move up the ranks of knowledge rapidly and he wishes to share with the world the joy that painting brings to him on a daily basis. He puts his emotions into his work and with that creates a strong connection that is the necessary result of any successful artistic endeavor.
