Jacques Drapeau

 

Jacques spent 7 years training to be a chemical engineer (in college and in graduate school) and 34 years working as a chemical engineer. His current employment can be described as “retired”, “unemployed bum”, or “starving artist”. He lives in Marysville.

As an artist, Jacques has had no formal training. Many of Jacques’ paintings feature trains, dinosaurs, dragons, wizards, and witches. Humans typically leave behind interest in these things as they mature into adults. At 63+ years of age, Jacques has, perhaps, not grown up.
