Marie-Helene Piquart

Medium or Discipline/art genre:  Monotype, monotype means one unit imprint 

I am born the 30th of January 1962 in Orleans a city at 100km from Paris.

I passed hours drawing and I already wanted to be a painter...

I was 14 when we came close to Paris, and I was 20 when I started the beaux art and lived on my own in Paris. Then I started by working with making paterns for materials, but there was not much job.

Bit by bit I finally worked in movies … I started painting for movies, then I was assistant, and finally I became decorator.


But I had enough of Paris, so I left in 1996 to live in the south of France, to be in nature and to 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, some times it is stronger than me I paint flowers or trees.

I made more and more exibitions, but I did not want to run everywhere with my paintings, I am quite wild and really don’t like moving too mutch… So all the exibitions 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 exibitions…


I used to do figurative paintings but since now 20 years I chose abstract to totally free, I feel like I was exploring the invisible univers with my chid heart. I love colors, light, innocence and lightness.
