Born in 1917, Aime Desmeules was
the son of noted Quebec folk artist Georges Desmeules. He started carving in the style of his father when he was 64, and he carved until his death in 1997.
His horse became Aime's trademark, but he carved many other animals - horse, dog, cat, giraffe, elephant, penguin, camel, pig, moose, deer and ox being among them. He also did human scenes such as a blacksmith at his anvil, a carpenter in his work clothes, and a boy reading a book.
Aime lived his life in Rivier du Loup County, Quebec. He is well represented in many private and public folk art collections, inside and outside of Quebec.
