Collection: Marie-Helene Piquart

I am born on the 30th of January 1962 in Orleans, France. When I was young, I passed hours drawing and I already wanted to be a painter... Later I did the « beaux art » in Paris. Then I started to work, making drawings for materials, but there was not much job, I finally worked in movies, decoration … I started painting for movies, then I was assistant, and finally I became a decorator. But I had enough of Paris, so I left in 1996 to live in the south of France, to be in the nature and paint. I found work in decoration of festivals, and restoring wall paintings in churches, and I restored my house. When I arrived in Provence I was painting figurative in a free way, then I wanted to be more free so I went to abstract paintings. I discovered monotype, one print, and I play with that technique since years, I love it, it is like the imprint of nature. I have always been outsider, following my own path, trying to be as near of my soul as I could. It’s not easy to be outsider, but I could not cheat… I try to share the best of me, I don’t want to share my triggers, every one has enough, I want to bring good energy to people… As I am very much Aquarius I am fascinated by space and love playing, when I start a painting I never know how it will be, I like to discover and try to be guided, as much as possible, by my intuition bit by bit. I made more and more exhibitions, but I did not want to run everywhere with my paintings to convince galleries, I am quite wild and I am very bad selling my work… So all the exhibitions I did was in the same region. Then I met some one, I sold my house, and we bought one in Algarve where I go on painting and doing exhibitions
