ABOUT THIS PAINTING I painted this original Tropical Seascape painting of a beach in the Caribbean Island of Guadeloupe. I painted it on the Beach of l'Anse Bertrand, on the northern shore of the island on location. The beautiful turquoise water radiating the sun beams reaches numerous hues as it gets trapped within the rocks. The transparency of the water and shimmering lights above it convey a sense of calm and easy, typical of the Caribbean beaches. A beautiful afternoon in paradise immortalized in this scene. This piece will fit well to decorate a home in a marine theme and add liveliness to the room with its vivid blue and turquoise colors.

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.
