Valérie Ghattas was born in France in 1969, member of the National Fine Arts of Dijon. She has always been passionate about painting, drawing and more generally creation. She attended art and fine arts schools for five years, then, alongside her teaching profession, she practices every day. She participated in exhibitions with painters and an artistic edition on women painters. Af-ter devoting herself to the link between painting and architecture, her passion extended to nature, to plants, seduced by the richness of spontaneous forms.
“My work comes from my observation of nature, plants and I extract the richness and spontaneity of forms. It’s a freedom of movement that allows me to give free rein to my imagination. I try to extract from it the very essence of my emotions in front of a landscape or the bark of trees, of a moment, of a lived experience. I open graphic and pictorial paths and the spectator can immerse himself in them with his sensitivity, invent his visual journey. His gaze travels in the movements of lines and colors. Go inside a landscape like a walk. Above all, I want to allow the journey, the dream that each of us needs. I practice regularly.
