Diane BOILARD : This Canadian artist understood early on that shapes and colors would be her means of expression. Self-taught, she develops her own techniques and puts her constant experimentation at the service of creation. The living water of a stream running over the stones or the birds that she paints are treated with simplicity in order to restore both the motif and the atmosphere.

Janine GALLIZIA : Representative of atmospheric watercolor, all in transparency and sensations, she is also director of the magazine “the art of watercolor” and wants to promote the quality and diversity of watercolor to raise awareness and educate the public.

Thomas W. SCHALLER : He is an architect and also an author. He sees his work as a game of contrasts. Contrast between shadow and light, verticality and horizontality, warm tones and cold tones but also the real and the imaginary, the past, the present or the future.

Marc FOLLY : Trained at the School of Applied Arts in Lyon, he has been practicing watercolor since 1992. The French’s favorite subjects are studio interiors, craftsmen at work, dancing shadows in the trees, which makes the scene. urban everyday life or not. He plays with chiaroscuro which gives his works a certain nostalgia.
