While studying music and art in his early twenties, at Boston University, John Collette, also sold his paintings through galleries in Boston. In the summertime he would visit Quebec City and sketch scenes of the charming streets in Vieux Quebec and with fellow artists on the quaint Rue du Tresor, he sold his art to tourists. It was in Quebec in 1968 that John met Carol, and later that year, they married.
John was fond of the beautiful brownstone buildings on Beacon Hill, in Boston and they provided much inspiration for his lovely etchings. Other subjects which he favored, include fishing boats, sailboats and oil rigs. John's artwork is included in many private, corporate, and public collections.
