Jacques Hébert lives in Quebec City during the cold season and in the small Charlevoix village of Saint-Joseph-de-la-Rive at the first signs of Spring. His scenes extend from the North Shore of Northern Quebec down to the New England coast. France and Switzerland have also been seduced by this man and his work since the 1990s.
Trained at the School of American Masters including Webb, Tony Couch, Betty Lou Schlem, Carlton Plummer, John Pike and Georges Carpenter, he taught himself in Quebec, as well as in New England. The quality and spontaneity of his paintings make him a highly sought-after teacher by painters' associations and the general public. In addition, he is co-founder of the Canadian Watercolor Society.
The luminosity and transparency of his works, the lines drawn in a single stroke, the choice of themes such as rivers, landscapes and Quebec dwellings in Eastern Quebec make his work unique and well recognizable.
