"I follow my gut and like to create a piece that surprises me with an effect or colour combination that I didn't expect and enchants me..."
Marie-Liesse BERTRE FLANDRIN comes from a long line of painters and grew up in a world where art and design reigned supreme. Her grandmother was an engraver and painter (second Prix de Rome in engraving) who passed on her passion for drawing and colour. Her ceramic artist and painter parents nurtured her love for design. She began drawing at the age of 15 and won her first prize. She then learnt and explored a range of techniques when she studied Interior Design but drawing always took pride of place. The young woman experienced the worlds of stage design and interior design before she started exhibiting her artworks. She spent 18 years creating and showcasing her work at countless exhibitions before opening her own gallery/studio. She displays her work alongside pieces by guest artists and raises her profile as a painter.
Marie-Liesse draws inspiration from nature, her children and the world of performance and sees observation as integral to her work. Subjects from everyday life often form the basis of her pieces. She draws textures, contrasts and colour combinations from everyday life and puts them into her paintings. The artist captures a feeling, a slice of life. She works with acrylic and oil on a variety of canvases: canvas, paper, wood etc. The artist uses lots of colours and shades with the pigments she blends herself. Her artworks sometimes sit in between reality and fantasy and include pieces of newspaper that add a dash of magic
