The 1938 Canadian Institute of Associated Arts Prospectus noted that Goutiere was an Instructor in Radio-Script, Article and Short-Story Writing, and "is a successful eastern short-story author and illustrator. He has had several radio-scripts produced over "CBR."
He had a two person exhibition in 1938 at the Vancouver Art Gallery with Margaret Carter, and a solo exhibition in 1947. An interesting autobiographical letter accompanied Goutiere's application for the 1947 exhibition, but did not appear in the small exhibition catalogue.
He also exhibited in B.C. Artist annuals in 1940, 1943, 1946, and 1947. He lived at Fisherman's Cove, West Vancouver in 1943, in 1946 he was living in Boundary Bay, and in 1947 in Vancouver.
BC Vital Statistics on-line did not provide any information on the artist as of May 2021.
