He exhibited with the Royal Canadian Academy  from 1925 to 1937.  He also exhibited at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, often in combined shows with Alfred Laliberte's sculptures.  He was a founding member of the Mont Saint Michel painters group.

His religious paintings can be found in churches in Saint-Felix-de-Valois,Saint-Eustache, Montreal and Riviere-du-Loup.
