Visit to Vannes September 27 2015

We have just returned from our very own Tour de France and during our time away we were able to meet up with one of our French artists Muriel Bernard.

Muriel first studied as a multi-media artist and then moved towards working as a commerical artist. Having been inspired by a visit to Brittany in 1989, she produced her first watercolours of Morbihan. She was an independent designer and illustrator for ten years, but now lives and works in Vannes, where she is a full-time artist.

She devotes herself entirely to her work which is shared between watercolours, oils and etchings.  Her 
etchings are realized on copper plate with aquatint. Prints in color are printed in a single sitting with a much longer inking time. Tints can vary according to the editions.

Muriel has been working on a new series of etchings and we are pleased to introduce them at our Autumn Exhibition which opens on Saturday 3rd October 2015.
