    “I want to paint a “feeling”; whether the seasons, a special light in the day, natural shapes or, my mood.”

    Fabienne Monestier's Artist Statement

    Nature is the true source of my inspiration. It presents me with floral and landscape subjects. In my work, I interpret the plant world, whether grasses, flowers, forests, or landscapes. I seek to combine the decorative aspect with the modern contemporary.

    My style can be seen as spontaneous and gestural while my paintings always refer to reality; even if I work from memory and my imagination. I want to paint a “feeling”; whether the seasons, a special light in the day, natural shapes or, my mood.
