About Emilie Heurtevent
Emilie grew up in Paris where Art is on every corner of the street. Her passion for painting began at a young age. Surrounded by museums and a constant turnover of exhibitions, she learned and practiced a variety of techniques, from realistic watercolors to Chinese calligraphy. It wasn’t long before she began experimenting with abstracts. Where do you get your inspiration? I paint when I get the urge. Different sounds, colors, lights, movement can trigger me. The grey of concrete in the city, the smoothness of the clouds. I also listen to a specific song for each painting that I make. It is crucial to set the atmosphere of the studio. How do you describe your art? I think my work is a unique expression of the response to the world and people around me. How do you feel when you are in the middle of creating a new painting? I’m a combination of calm and chaotic. Without any tangible idea in mind, I let my feelings flow onto the canvas. It’s all about experimentation.
