Born in 1972 at La Tronche in France, Elisabeth is a three girls mother and already twice a grand-mother !! Of Portuguese origin, the cultural imprint of this country is sometimes very present in her work.
Self-taught, Elisabeth learns to handle the brushes and the knife before integrating other technics like the square and the rule. Her first exhibition will take place in 2008 at the Marché des Peintres de Grenoble, renowned for the quality of the artists exposed. During the next 8 years, she will exhibit at the Hotel de l’Europe in Grenoble, at the Comptoir de l’Armaccord and regularly at the famous Annecy Art Market.Finally, in 2017, Elisabeth gets to exhibit at the Rendez-vous des Artistes de St Cyr au Mont d’Or, a highly anticipated gathering of the artistic world of Lyon.Finally determined to show her work to everybody, Elisabeth works on large format canvases.”When I start a painting, I go through all the stages: emotions, escapes, negative feelings for ultimately satisfaction”.
The Gallery’s Eye
Elisabeth later discovered her passion for painting. This discovery will be a real revelation as her talent is obvious! Entirely self-taught, Elisabeth perfectly mastered her creative tools that are the knife, the square, the ruler and of course the brushes.
Working with matter and very intense colors, Elisabeth succeeded in inspiring emotion, relief and intrigue in her paintings through an abstract artwork. Her work of small touches and intelligent mixtures of colors is reminiscent of Jean-Michel Basquiat or Georges Dubuffet. A raw art that invites the dream and reveals an impressive technical mastery.
