ABOUT THIS PAINTING I painted this Original Oil Painting in the Saintes Islands in Guadeloupe on location. This plein air Oil Painting of the pain de Sucre Beach depicts the vivid colors and shimmering landscape of the tropical scenery on the island. The sun shined bright on the sea and wet rocks, creating sharp contrasting lights ont he surface of the water and stones. In the distance, other islands stand in the horizon as clouds drift by. It rained several times on the beach while I was painting, and I had to protect the canvas from the tropical rains a few times under the rich vegetation of the beach.

She grew up in the heart of the Latin Quarter in Paris, influenced by the intellectual and academic scene of the area. From her mother, she inherited an early predilection for Arts and the inspirational charisma of family artists. In college, she studied Literature and Philosophy before attending graduate studies in business. After studying art privately in Paris, NYC, San Francisco and Boston, she grew a passion for Plein Air painting and Allaprima painting techniques. She developed a special interest in texture contrast where soft meets harsh and delicate meets blunt. Influenced by artists such as Edward Hopper and Edouard Manet, she is admirative of their unmatched ability to simplify shapes, and juxtapose contrasting values without blending. Currently she lives and works in Boston and Cambridge, MA. She won the First prize at Revere Beach Art Festival in 2016.
