Hubert J. Theroux
Hubert Theroux grew up in the rural community of Cardinal, Manitoba where his love for the Canadian prairie was nurtured on the family farm. His interest in art began in childhood and, by fourteen, he had settled on oils as his medium of choice. As a youth he painted the landscapes around his home, and then progressed to include the farm activities which he recalled from his early childhood. More recently, he has been inspired by his children and has captured on canvas their innocent play. Towering grain elevators, golden wheat fields and immense prairie skies are also favorite subjects.
Hubert’s training included correspondence courses during high school, as well as photography and art workshops throughout the years. He worked as a commercial artist for several years, and then in 1979 he devoted himself to his artwork full time.
Hubert has created murals for the Boissevain & Morton Arts Council, Ducks Unlimited, Nature Conservancy of Canada, St. Joseph Museum, St. Leon, Miami, Holland and Treherne. His work hangs proudly in many homes and corporate offices throughout Manitoba and abroad. Hubert’s images have been published as limited edition prints, book covers and calendars.
