From Arthoteque of the University of Moncton comes this biographical excerpt:

"Claude Roussel was born in 1930 in Edmundston, New Brunswick. He was ten years old when he began sculpting wood, and he had his first exhibition at the young age of 17. From 1950 to 1956, he studied visual arts at the Ecole des beaux-arts de Montreal where he received diplomas in sculpture and art education. In 1961, the Canada Council for the Arts awarded him a grant to travel and study in Europe, especially architectural decoration in England, France and Italy.

A very prolific artist, he participated in over 115 exhibitions including at least 40 solo showings and several traveling exhibits. Throughout his career he has created more than 30 works of monumental sculpture. Several of his works are part of private and public collections including Dyna Bolts/Enerloizes (1988), part of the permanent collection of the Sculpture Garden at the Seoul Olympic Park in South Korea . . . . His sculptures also grace public buildings, churches and university campuses across New Brunswick and Quebec."
