About

Watercolors from the French seashore

Thank you for visiting my art shop. I’m a french watercolor artist and illustrator, living and working on the west coast of Brittany, France westernmost region.

I have been painting with watercolor for more than twenty years and I’m more passionate about it now than ever. Apart from my love for this medium, I’ve always been attracted by visual arts and traditional crafts; During the 15 past years, I have worked as a stained-glass restorer, a ceramic decorator and a fine jewelry designer & maker.

The sea is an element that is intimately linked with my identity. The subjects I find inspirational are the sea and the natural world. I draw inspiration from the beautiful Breton seascapes, dramatic light of ocean storms, long sandy beaches, and the myriad of tiny treasures found along the seashores.

Brittany is a land of inspiration, a fascinating mix of spectacular coastline, ancient towns, magical islands and inland woods. I love to spend a good deal of time drawing and painting the natural world around me. I see art in everything around me.

Thematically, my artworks range from still life, seascapes and landscapes to dreamscapes.

My paintings and illustrations include boats and harbours, cliffs and beaches, ocean waves and rocky outcrops, misty islands, as well as fauna and flora…

Thank you for reading and visiting my shop! Happy shopping :)

    I'm just a girl who is happiest with a brush in her hand and sand between her toes. My art is about finding the beauty out of the simple and natural things from the sea and joy that comes with them.

Frequently asked questions

WHAT IS A GICLEE PRINT?

The fine art printing world uses the term today to describe the class of digital inkjet prints that are deemed museum-quality archival prints. A giclee print is simply a professionally made inkjet print made from a high-resolution digital file.

WHAT IS MY PRINTING PROCESS?

All my prints are archival reproductions printed on white Hahnemühle's German Etching paper, 310gsm, 100 % cellulose. This heavyweight etching board is velvety smooth with a fine surface texture.

Produced in my own studio in France, they are printed on Epson Stylus Pro 3000 using Epson UltraChrome® HDR Ink (Epson's latest generation of pigment ink technology). These archival pigmented inks are light-fast and fade-resistant, resulting in prints capable of lasting over a lifetime under proper archival handling.

You will be amazed by the high quality of my giclee prints. The colors are beautiful and delicate, and the subtle velvety surface structure provides an amazing depth very close to the original.

HOW TO TAKE CARE FOR ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS AND PRINTS?

Original watercolors and giclee prints should be kept from direct sunlight, extreme temperatures and humidity. The paper contracts and relaxes naturally, and extreme temperatures and moisture will in time cause deterioration. Also, no watercolor pigment is 100% lightfast, and direct sunlight may cause certain colors to fade.

Make sure your new watercolor or print has a glass covering to protect against dust and moisture and an acid-free mat or spacer to keep the painting from touching the glass. Along with an acid-free or acid-neutral mat, be sure the backing is also acid-free.
