This floral painting just won the "Mixed media prize" in the Salon de Vouvray !
I've used water media : water soluble pencils, wax soluble pastels, watercolor, watercolor pencils, acrylic inks, wax pastels. The paper is strong watercolor paper Montval.
This mixed media painting is impressionistic, romantic, shabby chic...
For this beautiful garden scenery, I was interested by the light on the back of the bosh of flowers, in the evening, when the light is warm, and there is a golden mist full of life. I’ve used transparent colors, and warm tones. (I often use transparent glazes !) The petals of roses are delicates, painted with watercolor, and watersoluble pencils.
There's shadow and light. i've taken a lot of pleasure to paint in negative the complicated shapes of the branches, to give very soft contrast to the foliages.

My paintings and drawings are rather figurative.
Main time, I use my imagination and my memory, because I like the freedom of evocation. But I also work with photography. I am interested with male and female nudes, landscapes, forests, flowers, human figure, still life. Imagination, dream, fantasy or memory, never mind : I am looking for the poesy.
I use a lot of technics on canvas and paper: oil, watercolor, ink, watersoluble pencils, acrylic, acrylic markers, colored pencils, mixed media...
I like graphism in the painting. And glazes too ! I often use transparent colors.
I am very interested by the richness of transparency in the painting. The old glazes oil technic is now available with the layers of beautiful high quality acrylics.
The most important thing, for me, is to create images !
I sell my artworks in Great-Britain, United-States and Australia.
I am a french professional painter. All my artworks are original paintings and drawings, direct from my studio in Touraine. For as long as I can remember, I have always painted and drew. I have studied experimental cinema and engraving at the Institut d'Arts Visuels of Orléans, France. My favorite practice, in cinema, was to draw the story-boards ! I get an Art School High Diploma in 1989. I began painting in 1994. I regularly exhibit my painting in collective or solo shows. I also often participate (and win) in big size painting compétitions, in France. I am also a lyrical mezzo singer in the professionnal choir from Opera of Tours, France. Depuis aussi longtemps que je me souvienne, j'ai toujours peint et dessiné. J'ai fait les Beaux Arts à l'IAV d'Orléans, où j'ai obtenu mon DNSEP en 1989. A l'époque, je faisais de la gravure et du cinéma expérimental. Ce que je préférais dans le cinéma, c'était de dessiner les story-board ! Je suis venue tardivement à la peinture : 1994.
