Sacha was born in Saguenay Lac St-Jean in 1965. He left his native region for Montreal, where he received his Bachelor degree in graphic design from the University of Quebec and worked in the visual arts field for a number of advertising firms. He also taught many private painting classes until he decided to devote himself entirely to his art.
Traveling throughout Canada, the United States, and Latin America, Sacha has rebuilt his palette of colours and reaffirmed his style. Upon his return to Quebec, he moved to the countryside where he found not only the colours he had experienced in his travels, but also the pure pleasure in painting.
He works with colour in such a way as to keep its original purity, thereby giving the subject its unique shape, texture and light, all applied almost flat. Hence the colours are allowed to express themselves.
Sacha has been a participant in many solo and group exhibitions in Canada and the United States. His many accomplishments include: his participation in an important series focused on Chile's culture in Santiago, Chile, doing illustrations for the book, Histoire de Nelson, written by Joanne Lalancette, and teaching visual arts in a private school in Oaxaca, Mexico. His work is available at Koyman Galleries in Ottawa, ON.
