About the Site

I'd like to thank...

First of all my dear Marie, without her "Art by Aurélia" would not exist.

Also all the webmasters who are hosting some of my drawings on their sites.

The persons who allowed me to display the drawings I made for them.

The autographs shown on the site wouldn’t be there if it weren’t for: Jensen Ackles but also Mrs. Ackles, Beth from the Official Newsletter; Lara Fabian and my little sister because she’s THE fan of Lara; Emmanuel Curtil and Reynald & Greg for their help; Chris DowlingJason MannsEmad Alaeddin; Misha Collins; Donnie Wahlberg & Danny Wood and Zoë for her help.

All the people who took the time to send me a little note after visiting the site. It’s much appreciated and it encourages me to continue.

And finally, all the site's visitors. Don’t hesitate to come by often to check for updates ;)

It All Began With...

...a common interest for Jensen Ackles.

Thanks to the television show "Dark Angel", I discovered Jensen Ackles who I became a fan of. In my defense, you have to admit that it’s hard to resist such a combination of charm and talent. Oh, but I’m rambling here. While searching information about Jensen, I found the site JRAUnlimited and I joined its forum. It was the first time I was entering a fan community and I met a lot of wonderful people there. In this forum I met Senga, the first person who hosted my drawings of Jensen, which allowed me to show them on the forum. And that’s how my "artistic adventure" on the net began. My drawings of Jensen were then displayed by JRAU, by Jen2003 and when Ellemsa opened her own site devoted to Jensen, she also displayed my fanarts. I used to have a little gallery, created by Kynetik from Jen2003 ,that allowed me to display some of my non Jensen-related drawings on other forums.

Then Marie offered to create "Art by Aurélia" for me which allowed me to show all my drawings as I go along and here is the result.

About the Artist

Aurélia Chaintreuil
I showed my face in 1978, I’m French and I live in the Lyons region, more precisely in the Beaujolais.

ACC? They’re my initials. One day, someone told me: "I hang only signed artworks on my wall", that’s how "ACC" has become my trademark, with a design that can change according to the theme of the drawing.

Main sources of inspiration: Jensen Ackles and "The Lord of The Rings". As the trilogy is my favorite movie, drawing the characters is a way to immerse myself in this fantastic universe and the models are so interesting that I learn a lot. You can also add Donnie Wahlberg and NKOTB and many more subjects.

Favorite technique: graphite on watercolor hot pressed paper. Most of my drawings are made with graphite because I’ve always thought the black and white portraits had much more charm than the ones in color.

Since 2008, Aurelia-art.com is also a firm registered at the Chambre des Métiers et de l’Artisanat du Rhône (for more details, see the page "Private Policy"). You can now order prints of original creations, originals of drawings or personalized drawing commissions.
