Brenda Levert


Like many artists, I have been painting and drawing since I was a very young child. My father was an artist so I had the opportunity to spend many hours with him in his studio. He taught me how to draw and introduced me to many different mediums from pencils, to watercolours, to oils and acrylics. I tried them all.


I went to art school at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art, in Montreal Quebec, where I lived at that time. I studied painting and drawing. After that I spent many years painting and selling my work, and then I started teaching painting and drawing in my home studio.


Then one day a friend introduced me to Decorative Art. I loved it! After taking many classes at guilds and conventions, I started to create my own designs and pattern packets. Now I have been teaching and designing for over 20 years. My specialty is birds and flowers.


I hope that you enjoy painting my designs as much as I had creating them.

Since 1992, I have practiced painting and this hobby is now a passion.


After several classes and with a few weekends in workshops, I am now learning on my own. Also, it was by experimenting on ceramics and wood that I have finally realized that my favorite surface to paint on is canvas. Since then I developed my own technique which joins some of the traditional techniques of painting.


It describes my work as dynamic and energetic! I use a palette of bright and shimmering colors. The simplicity and candor of my work represents magnanimity and generosity. I draw my inspiration from life itself...


The colors and life that radiates from the scenes with the children remind us of those wonderful moments during our childhood following the flow of our moods. The omission of facial features ensures that everyone can imagine themselves in this small world.

Carole Majeau


Born at St-Gabriel-de-Brandon in Lanaudière, it is in this beautiful region that I discovered Decorative Art painting. After painting innumerable projects and participating in many training offered by the boutiques, I have decided to teach Decorative Art Painting at home.


After moving to Quebec for work, I kept on improving by participating at seminar offered by renowned artist. In 2010, I have decided acquiring La Boîte à Pin-So to join my entrepreneurial experience with my art passion.


Today, I have the chance to be able to live from my painting, my pattern selling, my teaching and the management of Pin-So and Les Éditions CDP.


It is always a pleasure for me to share my passion with others and to discuss about new incoming project.

Caroline Fraser


Passionate about drawing and painting from a young age, it was at 10 years old that my parents gave me my very first oil painting box and they enrolled me in classes. Very enthusiastic, I remember the excitement of these first sessions and painting quickly became a nice passion.


As a teenager, I painted until the wee hours of the morning. In love with animals, they became my favorite subjects. They appear in all my drawings or almost. Young adult, I had to put away my brushes for a few years. The studies, the work and my passion for the horses occupied all my time. I used to paint occasionally, but not much. Self-taught artist, it is only a few years later that I started to paint again and decided to enroll in drawing classes to understand and acquire some techniques.


In addition to the techniques of drawing, the study of portraits, human body and textures, my classes allow me to touch other mediums such as pastel, sanguine, charcoal and Indian ink. My thirst for learning is always growing and art is now becoming more important in my life.


As time goes by, I am also experimenting with porcelain, wood and fabric painting. Although I spend most of my time painting realistic animals, it?s been two years since I devote part of my art to developing and creating playful animals. These plunge me into a light imagination, open to creation and stories. They allow me to escape from the more serious aspect of realism.

Danielle Boudreault


Decorative painting arrived in a moment in my life and has awakened the artist in the soul that I was. It was a real blow of heart! So I formed, initially, with experienced teachers and recognized in this environment. Subsequently, I continued my development in a self-taught, while trying out different approaches with professional artists in acrylic and oil. Bachelor's degree in education, it was natural for me to combine my two passions: education and the arts. I devote myself entirely since 2001. I share my experience with pleasure by offering workshops in brush stroke and to my studio. Creative and detail-oriented, I love to bring a modern touch and unique in my work.

Hélène Pelletier


Since my young age, I always liked everything that was "Art". I really drew in my youth, I set above the characters of the comic Archie. My favorite class in school has always been the visual arts ... At the age of 20 years, I tried painting with Artex tubes (tubes with a ball after it rolled onto the fabric). As part of a course to become an interior decorator, I took drawing classes. For several years, I made ceramics. I also took courses in oil painting in the early 1990s. I liked all that, but I always ended up losing interest me. Nothing has as much passion as acrylic paint. I really found "my" medium when I signed up for the first time in a course offered by the city where I lived at the time. Sewing up, I found myself in the shop brush strokes or I taught my first class April 30, 2011. And it will not be the last ...

Guylaine Robitaille


With a very artistic side, I started my first course in making and decorating cakes, chocolates and pastries of all kinds in 2005. Three years later, having made the turn, I turn to painting on wood. Completely addicted to this new passion, I devour all the forms and techniques for this art without end. I then take courses on an ongoing basis and recently, my first boss was born. The bite is only the beginning. Determined and passionate, this adventure continues to guide me to other surprises.

Holly Hanley


My friends say that I was born with a paintbrush in my hand. Well, I'm not sure about that, but I always loved art. I had a great art teacher (Mr. Ruder) who introduced me to countless techniques and inspired me to develop my artistic abilities.


I took more art classes in University and received my Bachelor of Education majoring in Art and Music in 1996. While attending University, I found employment at Dutch Growers where I first started teaching folk art classes. In 2001 they decided to close their folk art department and although that door closed, another door opened called Paintin' Treasures, my own little folk art shop where I teached classes and sold various folk art supplies. Although now the shop being closed, I keep giving a few classes in my home workshop and am selling my patterns ans supplies through my website.


This change gave me the opportunity to travel teach and this has given me incredible memories that inspire my work.

Isabelle Desrochers


Native from Quebec City, Isabelle was a very energetic child. To get a small reprieve of piece and quiet, her mother would give her crayons and paper. Ever since, she has never stopped drawing.


As a teenager, Isabelle steered towards caricatures and drawing illustrations for magazines or for children's books. Her preference being for felts and colored crayons, avoiding all types of brushes and paint. A career as a painter was definitely not on her mind.


It was her mother-in-law that made her discover decorative painting in her twenties; a new passion that has made it possible to bring to life her ideas on many other surfaces than paper.
