ABOUT CHRISTINE

I am Christine Broussard, a traveler, who lived in France, Morocco, and Canada before landing in Washington DC.  

In early 2000, my activity in art started with faux-finish patinas and decors on walls and furniture working with decorators and builders in the greater Washington DC area as well as in Fort Lauderdale and its surroundings.

 

Requests from customers lead me to painting on smaller surfaces started where watercolor and acrylics were rediscovered while following workshops where ever I traveled.  I combine my paintings with faux-finish products such as marble dust, gold leaf and Venetian plaster.

 

While visiting Croatia, Greece, Catalonia, Andalucia, Spain and the South American continent, I filled up my journals with sketches and impressions of the moment.   Learned the use of Renaissance painting with casein on furniture and later was introduced to icon drawing using the Byzantine canons and continue practicing along the year with recognized iconographers.

 

I too, follow some artists around the world:

Winter 2018  urban sketching and art/travel journaling in South India led by French artist Alain Marc for two weeks of daily drawing and painting.

Fall 2018 took me to Eastern Europe on the Danube where I met urban sketchers through Instagram and filled up a journal from that experience.

Fall 2019.

 

Embark with me on a travel journal retreat to Barcelona and L’Estartit on the Costa Brava 2-9 October 2019-  Artists of all levels who wish to improve on their style, freedom of expression and discover a splendid area of Northern Spain are welcome.
