Laura C. Comes from an artistic family: his paternal grandmother painted, her father is a painter in Roanne, the story continues.
Child, she began drawing and painting at table next to his father any support then create a pretext for (rollers, boxes, doors, walls
"I love to paint since I was little."


Her career

After two years at the Beaux-Arts in Lyon, she joined the Esag (Higher School of Graphic Arts) in Paris where she enjoys teaching from designers and photographers recognized.
In deciding to devote herself solely to painting, she chose the roosters, the symbol of the Bresse, the subject of choice and then exposed at Georges Blanc in Vonnas.
For her, it also carries some menus.
Having painted many portraits and other animals, she started her period  «Coquettes».

Her universe, Her work

Initially, she wanted white walls to excite his creativity and those of his studio are covered with colored drawings by his children. Gradually, they are the ones that have shaped its cocoon.

She need music to silence his fears and avoid physical tension induced by the silence. The artists she listens to him sometimes inspire the atmosphere of his paintings.

She paints every day.
For her painting requires a daily workout, like a top sportsman. This is the only way forward, to evolve. She

Anxiety of the «blank canvas», and it is only when a table is opened to him the idea of ​​neighbor. But often she thinks the dominant green paint, then realizes in the end it is red. A painting leads to another.

Laura sees her work as close to that of a craftsman, so often expressed his instinctive taste for obsessive color.

Her masters

She loves Pablo Picasso (obviously), Francis Bacon (most unlikely), Pierre Soulages, Niki de Saint Phalle and Richard Lindner

She also admires fashion designers like Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Karl Lagerfeld and Vivienne Westwood. She is very interested in speech and Ă l'imagination designers she considers to be complete artists.

The «Pretty»

Laura loves so feminine

"Women, it's a nice topic!" Subject

Eternal subject of controversy, a subject object, the subject of attention

Subject of fun and levity too.

Maybe prisoner of perfectionism that drives it hard to finish a canvas. This attention to detail reflects the care they provide to the vanity of his subjects.

She painted the faces of the face because it is easier to engage with these ladies. In contrast to the modern trend, she literally painted without depth, a painting «smooth» because this technique is more favorable to the suggestion, imagination, the fantasy of the visitor who does not cling to a volume, or a material.
The beauty and soul interested can approach the divine. The graphics
Perfect closer to materialism and reality often cruel world.

Eroticism that emerges from its glamorous characters is always suggested, never displayed. Nothing can block the interpretation of the viewer who likes to do the job of appropriating the work.

His «finishing touch» is always translated by the application of beads and cabochons. Like a little hand, while precision. It is this detail that challenges, entertains or moves sometimes.
The beauty is just as much in women than in accessories. Laura loves
Accessory that looks great both in the dress she draws, with the animal that often accompanies his characters.
