Rochleau Court

Shirley Gibson-Langille


72 Princess Street. When I painted the Modern Primitive store and part of the Toucan Irish Pub in 2012, I discovered Rochleau House, which was built in 1808 by Frances Xavier Rochleau. He was a stone mason. In 1802, he built the wall around St. Paul's Church on Queen Street. It is said that the alley behind the Rochleau House is haunted. Chez Piggy is located behind Rochleau House. Opposite Chez Piggy is an entranceway to the lovely Toucan Irish Pub. A walled passageway runs out to Brock Street and Le Chien Noir Restaurant

About the artist:

Shirley Gibson-Langille was born in Toronto, but now calls Kingston home, where she is very active in the arts scene. As a Romantic Painter, Shirley works on location, taking the time to connect with her subject, always with a feeling of joy for the love of things just as they are!   

Over the past many years, Shirley has given and continues to give her artists’ perspective to so many of the unique nooks and crannies of Kingston, as well as the other special locations she captures in her work.

Shirley specializes in Portraits of homes and businesses.
