Born in 1956 in Trois-Rivières, Quebec (Canada), Raymond Quenneville is a self-taught artist who has been painting for over 35 years. After having explored a variety of media, he went back to oil painting and decided to pursue his own unique style in expressing landscape and light. Raymond Quenneville has held many solo exhibitions and participated in numerous collective exhibitions and symposia. Winner of several national and international awards he has received many special mentions from juries and the public. He is a member of the Institut des arts figuratifs (IAF) and of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA).
In 2015, Quenneville and another Fallen Leaf artist, Yvon St-Aubin, began collaborating on a five-year project to paint the most picturesque regions of the St. Lawrence. With the addition of three more Quebec artists, a "Group of Five" was established with a goal of creating 100 paintings, from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Thousand Islands. This is the first such venture in Quebec's art history, and in October, 2017, the artists were introduced as guests of honour at the Quebec National Assembly.
