Michèle Paris-Seubert grew up in Southern France and now resides in California.
She often uses her own photographs as the basis for her drawings and paintings. Her artwork is representational and highly personal as she incorporates into her work her emotional response to the places she has visited. Michèle is a devoted follower of Vincent Van Gogh and John Singer Sargent, whose brushstrokes, palette and love for light have strongly influenced her painting.
Michèle works primarily in watercolors and oils. In addition to painting, she authored a bilingual children’s story in English and French illustrated with watercolors. Her book can be found in local libraries and bookstores.
Michèle is also an accomplished photographer. Her photographs can be realistic or abstract. She loves to play with shapes. She has done some work with both traditional and infrared cameras. One of her photographs won first place with the San Mateo County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Various of her paintings and photographs are exhibited in juried shows at the San Francisco Women Artist Gallery.
