Born in Fife, Scotland in 1951, Jack Vettriano left school at sixteen to become a mining engineer. For his twenty-first birthday, a girlfriend gave him a set of watercolour paints and, from then on, he spent much of his spare time teaching himself to paint.
In 1989, he submitted two paintings to the Royal Scottish Academy’s annual exhibition; both were accepted and sold on the first day. The following year, an equally enthusiastic reaction greeted the three paintings, which he entered for the prestigious Summer Exhibition at London’s Royal Academy and his new life as an artist began from that point on.
Over the last twenty years, interest in Vettriano’s work has grown consistently. There have been sell-out solo exhibitions in Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and New York.
2004 was an exceptional year in Vettriano’s career; his best known painting, The Singing Butler was sold at Sotheby’s for close to £750,000; he was awarded an OBE for Services to the Visual Arts and was the subject of a South Bank Show documentary, entitled ‘Jack Vettriano: The People’s Painter’.
From 1994-2007, Vettriano was represented by Portland Gallery in London but the relationship ended in June 2007. Since then, Vettriano has been focusing on a variety of private projects, including the launch of a new book, and painting of a portrait of Zara Phillips as part of a charity fund-raising project for Sport Relief, the experience of which was captured in a documentary broadcast on BBC1 in March 2008. Vettriano divides his time between his homes in Fife, London and Nice.

New York, the largest city in the United States, is in southeastern New York State, at the mouth of the Hudson River. Washington, D.C. is 230 miles south, Miami 1,340 miles south and Los Angeles 2,875 miles west. New York has had a colorful history, starting with its discovery by Henry Hudson at the beginnings of the 17th century.
In 1626, the story goes, the Dutchman Peter Minuit made one of the most remarkable real estate deals in history when he purchased Manhattan Island from the Indians for a reported 24 Dollars worth of trinkest; real estate values have increased considerably then. Sponsored by the Dutch Wst India Company, the young colony, called New Amsterdam, got off to a good start and because of its excellent location as a seaport, prospered immediately.

Vibrant, colorful poetry for the eyes might best describe the work of Charlene Audrey. With a skillful artistic flair, Charlene’s enthusiasm for her art comes to life in her paintings.
Greatly inspired by modern and vintage motifs, decorative art, and her love of life and nature, Charlene composes her work through the skillful use of the graceful transparency of watercolors and the utilization of the energy of acrylics. She flirts with new techniques and embraces traditional ones.
Born in Syracuse, N.Y., and raised in the beautiful Eastern Township of Québec, Charlene began her artistic journey at a young age. Sparked by the remarkable countryside that surrounded her, Charlene’s passion for art grew.
This passion led Charlene to a brilliant creative career. She first worked as a designer for the wallpaper company, Imperial Home Décor Group, and then expanded her horizons as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. After teaming up with the creative and licensing studio, PELA Concept in 2003, she began making a name for herself in the licensing world. Today, Charlene Audrey is represented by Suzanne Cruise.
With 15 years of creative experience, Charlene exhibits her talents in various fields. Driven by a great passion for art, the environment and now though scuba diving, Charlene founded the first underwater art gallery in Canada – Aquart. Through this fabulous project, she began painting underwater!
On a personal note, Charlene lives and works from her countryside home. When she lays down her paints and brushes, she has the great pleasure of taking care of her beautiful daughter, Danaele and her long-time companion, Luka.

Denis Nolet was born in Quebec in 1964. Beginning his study of art at the age of nine, Nolet was able to experiment with various styles of painting early on, finding his own unique genre in a fusion of his influences and establishing himself as an artist by the time he was only twenty.
Preferring moonlight to sunlight, Nolet paints scenes saturated with the romance of the night. With a brushstroke suggestive of Seurat and a palate of infinite hues, Nolet creates a mirage of his medium wherein he seems to transform the oil paint into soft, smooth, cloth. The finished painting almost appears as if it were dyed rather than painted. This illusion of a delicate fabric in place of canvas makes Nolet’s work all the more sentimental. It is only upon closer inspection of the work that brushstrokes become visible and the piece can be more certainly deciphered as an oil painting.
As the properties of earth and sky become blurred, the wet pavement reflects the architecture, figures, street lamps, trees, flower vases, and other objects of beauty included in the work that make Nolet’s compositions picture perfect. The discernment between the planes of space is distinguished by color saturation. Shadows on the lower half of the picture plane become just as important as the intended three-dimensional objects themselves.
These muted reflections divide the canvas, giving the final work a balance that is so cinematic one may be reminded of a 1950’s film or a life-like animation from a Disney movie. In other instances, Nolet’s work bears resemblance to an analytical architectural drawing, pushing and pulling negative space with complementary or analogous colors, occupying planes of light and shadow, while portraying his figures like an elaborate trophy awarded for ballroom dancing or a scene from “Moulin Rouge“.
While keeping the paintings somewhat ambiguous with anonymous silhouettes and mysterious, yet familiar, locations the viewer is easily carried away into Nolet’s idyllic world. Despite his varying compositions, all of Nolet’s work contains a common theme of universal romanticized urbanism. Whether the picture reveals a couple dancing on a rooftop or embracing in a misty evening beneath the street lights in the quaint streets of an idealized French-flavored city, Nolet’s paintings exude the exhilaration present in any moment containing passion. Amid a crowd, or alone on a balcony, Nolet’s couples draw the viewer in, encouraging the onlooker to dream of what was, what is, or what could be, love.
