Jean-Pierre Dubreuil was born in France in 1952. His artistic talent developed as early as lower school where his caricatures earned him many detentions. After perfectly boring business and law studies he joined the corporate world that lead him to live in multiple places in Europe, the Middle East and South East Asia.
After attending an executive program at the Harvard Business School, where he met his wife, he settled in Boston and started an information technology consulting company that he still manages.
Although most of his current paintings reflect memories of France, New England is also very present as well as some of the exotic places where he used to live. He has been known to walk around with a small kit of watercolors and settle for a few minutes for a quick sketch.
After having discovered the joys of monotyping, he joined the Monotype Guild of New England. While living in Boston, he was a member of the United South End Artists, Brookline Open Studios & Cambridge Art Association.
He now has joined the Asheville Gallery of Arts, a well established coop of artists in downtown Asheville.
His other interests involve cooking for friends and family and reading. He is also a flight instructor, commercial pilot qualified on airplanes, seaplanes and helicopters. He teaches watercolors on a semi regular basis.
He and his wife Dana, have two adult children and two grandchildren. They now live in Asheville, NC with "Chachat" an over-indulged affectionate grey cat.
