This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, with the permission of the artist's family is from the artist's website, www.mauricelemieux.com:

F. Maurice Lemieux's works can be seen in numerous public places such as lobbies, terraces, gardens, hospitals, hotels, schools, community centers, senior residences, shopping centers, churches, highway overpasses, buildings, museums, and metro stations.

The dimension of the art pieces ranges from jewelry size to monumental, from several inches to 600 feet, and non-functional to functional with the purpose of being decorative.

Depending upon the project, be it for a private collector or a public organization, his goal was to complement beautifully the environment for which it was destined. This process consisted of inspiration, intuition, sketches, calculations, models, "maquettes", photography, welding, chiseling, grinding, sanding, polishing and anchoring to name but a few.

From boyhood to manhood his intrigue and quest in artistic research made him strive for perfection in the use of a multitude of materials, tools and machinery. He used various malleable materials including wood, concrete, steatite, marble, glass, ceramic, steel, stainless steel, charcoal, oil paint. He also invented special tools in accordance to his needs and a new technique for non casting with one of a kind material called aluminum foam. This achievement was filed in the Library of Congress in Washington D.C.
