Né en 1946 à Saint-Léonard N.-B., Clarence Bourgoin s'initie très jeune à la peinture. Vers l'âge de 20 ans il partit vivre à Montréal, perfectionna son talent et revint dans sa ville natale avec un bagage artistique qui lui valut le titre de Membre Émérite de l'Institut des Arts Figuratifs et celui de Maître en Beaux-Arts de l'Académie Internationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec. Répertorié au Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal depuis 1987 il compte plus d'une exposition à son actif tant au Canada, à Liège en Belgique, en Hongrie ou au prestigieux Carrousel du Louvre de Paris et plusieurs prix de reconnaissance lui sont décernés.

Charismatique et grand communicateur il fonda, en 2004, avec le support financier de Mme.
