I was introduced to the work of Aurelie Alvarez through Cote Maison, which led me to her website.... I just lost myself in her art...LOVED IT!!!!
Aurelie is a French painter living in L’Isle sur la Sorgue . She and her family live in an ancient multi-storied home-some of which they have preserved in its layered state of beautiful decay.
Aurelie, was born in 1967, studied first for 5 years at the Beaux Arts School of Avignon, France. Her grandmother and mother as antics experts and dealers for generations in South of France introduced Aurelie to the 17th and 18th centuries' secrets and beauty... through her paintings, she is opening for us the doors of old castles full of treasures, pastels and romantics, presented in her personal modern way. Aurelie receives much of her inspiration from her surroundings... her studio is located in the attic above their living space. She's also influenced by Japanese blockprints and the theatrical wall decorations of the Baroque period.
