Born into an era of activism, Hells Angels and mind expanding drugs, Ouellett’s youth was a mixture of old world values and new world sexual intellect. And while the visual indulgence of Catholic church lasted only a brief period it left him notably scarred. He began drawing as a child. He found he could easily entertain classmates with his drawings of grotesque prostitutes rendered nude but for their high-top sneakers. Album cover art was closely scrutinized. Escher, Dali and MoeÂ”bius books were always close at hand. Absurdist/surrealist Super-8 film experiments paralleled his constant illustration efforts. He grew to adore the cinema of Fellini and later to marvel at LynchÃ¢Â”Â”s “Eraserhead.” Rather than pursue a formal education in the fine arts he chose to study the craft of film making. After college he became a production designer working on feature films in New York City. He currently divides his time between art, scriptwriting and film design.
