Hi! Charlene Precious here, the artist behind the images you see! Thank you so much for your interest in getting to know a bit more about me! At the highest level, I’m a combination of a lucky wife to the greatest man, a daughter to the most wonderful mom and dad, a Beatles fan at the core, a wanderluster, a lover of all things rustic, vintage, or shabby chic, an experienced marketer, an artist entrepreneur and photographer, and an MBA graduate.
In my corporate life, I have a rewarding career in marketing that spans from the fashion industry at PVH Corp., to the technology industry at Canon Canada, and then most recently to the food industry at the world’s best company, General Mills Canada. Along the way, I pursued my MBA at the Schulich School of Business because of my love for business and continuous learning and it was very much one of the most memorable experiences of my life.
But while I am deeply captivated by the business world, I could never deny my love for the arts. There is an artist inside me that cannot be suppressed and she comes out in everything that I do, even in the most boring business setting you can imagine. And so, as a self-taught photographer with a knack for design, I launched Charlene Precious Co. in 2011, turning my original photography into nostalgic art perfect for gifts and home decor. Today I am so grateful to be able to share the sentiments of my photographs and connect with fine art lovers all over the world!
