I love to imagine flowers, foliage, nature. I'm inspired by the plants in my garden. I always keep in mind the beauty and pleasant vision of a decorative and figurative artwork.
In France, we got the french tradition (now it became like a "classical" school painting, due to its historical reputation) of the impressionistic painting. Exploring colors and forms to evocate the nature. Art is an interpretation of the world we see, we feel. It's one of the beautiful and positive inventions of the human mind. Art makes me believe in humankind ...
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.
