Valerie Blanchard. Self-taught painter and illustrator.
I live in Barcelona since 2009.
I paint everyday situations of the city. I am going to walk here and there. I make sketches, take notes or take some photos. Once at home I plasmo on the canvas with my personal imaginary. Many colors and a touch of irony contributing a style naif fake and costumbrista, with small scenes of our neighborhood.
I started painting in 1993 when I lived in Granada and was a model of the painter Toshima Yasumasa.
I have made numerous exhibitions in France, Germany, Belgium, Andalusia and Barcelona.
