His artwork has been included in several exhibitions that bring awareness to global issues and also for charity fundraisers. Some of his paintings were donated to several NGO's. In addition to exhibiting in galleries he now continues to create art on commissions. John's favorite art medium is painting with acrylic and some series consists of fumage or metal leaf. Sometimes he finds inspiration for his canvases through nature and some of his work has symbolic significance. Creating art for him is a spiritual experience and he often includes spiritual elements into his artwork. A New York City art critic calls John Boudreau's work as "the painting (that) could breathe." Also, John is an international juried award winning artist whose artwork is published. John hopes to continue to contribute to culture within a diverse society which he is privileged to live in. Subsequently, he hopes his artwork inspires, brings joy and value to others, while visually transporting the viewer.

His artwork is also displayed in therapy counseling rooms for their serenity).
