Jacques
  

When I retired in 2001, I was looking for something that would fill my free time, especially in the world of art. 

I was an art teacher in high school and at that moment all my time was concentrated  to teaching. Not enough time for personal projects.

I live in a small village, all we could find in the village was a grocery store and a kite store. I had seen a few kite festivals and this drew me to buy a kite.  After 20 minutes of flying my new stunt kite I did a beautiful landing on a fence post and it was the end of my first kite!

 I went back to the kite store with the remaining pieces of my kite.  There the owner showed me hand painted kites from Robert Trépanier. I met him later and we became friends.  He gave me the idea to experiment this particula medium.

 
After my first test with acrylic paint I was not really satisfied. It was too heavy, too opaque and the color stayed a little sticky. I was looking for transparent  colors. So I experimented with many products to get where I am today.

Jacques makes all styles of kites, most of them he makes himself and paints;
sometimes he paints on premade kites, but they are all beautiful with his touch!   

They are all special one-of-akind works of art.

At this time we have some fabulous Brazilian styled fighter kites called Pipas from Jacques.
