Bio

Guilmette is trained as an architect and artist in Grenoble, France. She
studied architecture at the Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Architecture de
Grenoble, as well as sculpture and life model drawing at the Ecole des
Beaux Arts, where she was trained by Simone Magnan. She has been drawing and painting since her early childhood. She is actively involved in her belief, the Baha'i Faith, and seeks to transmit through her painting the basic principles, such as the spiritual essence of the human being, the unity of humanity, the equal rights of men and women and the development of the virtues. She has been inspired by her journeys through wide-ranging cultures around the world as well as her attraction to spirituality. She is passionate about the minimalist portraits, the movement and rhythm, the heart, and the academic drawings. Her artistic identity is characterised by the simplicity and the purity of the line, with mostly gold and primary colours. When it comes to
sculpture, it is the human body that she is currently drawn to, although she has other projects in mind. As an art therapist, she also gives soapstone workshops. Of Iranian parents, she was born in North Africa and grew up in France. She worked as an Architect and a Director of Operations for over 30 years, in France, Germany, Poland, and in Arizona and California in the
United States of America. Since 2015, she is settled in Switzerland. She is a mother of two and a grandmother of three gorgeous granddaughters.

“Arts, crafts and science uplift the world of being, and are conducive
to its exaltation.” Baha’u’llah 1817-1892
