Born in 1946, Gérald Trudel spent his youth in Laval, near the Rivière des Mille-Iles. This was the start of a friendship between wildlife and the artist. Later, when he had a small house in the Laurentians, his interest in wildlife further developed. He continues to study and tame all the animals around him.
