Get to Know the Sculptor
Born in Tadoussac in 1946, Gaëtan Hovington studied woodcarving at Jean-Julien Bourgault School, from 1962 to 1964 in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. Once graduated, he returned to his native town to establish his woodcarving business. Today, at the apogee of his craft, Gaëtan is well known for his authentic Canadian sculptures, which depict realistic characters from our nation’s folklore. His unique pieces, collected by visitors from all over the world, are imperishable mementos of their visit to this remarkable artist’s workshop.
