Roland Villeneuve. Sculptor. Wood carver. Mirabel, (Laurentides) Quebec. Active mid to late 20th century.

Roland Villeneuve made nieve carvings, mostly of farm animals, and always well painted. He carved in Pine and sometimes used ‘as found’ materials for details (real hair for a horse’s tail for example). He lived and worked in the lower Laurentian mountains north of Montreal.

Some examples of Villeneuve’s work can be found here. (Link to the flickr site of Jacques Pleau):
