it is my belief that if you are a gifted artist, no matter which medium
you are working in, you will excel at it-better than most. this theory
is easily proven by looking at the beautiful paintings and
equally gorgeous photography of french-born,
london-based artist, audrey walas.
a graduate of the university of toulouse, france
with a masters in contemporary art, audrey says she grew
up always asking her parents for crayons and pencils, and she has
been drawing and painting ever since. she also takes photographs
of every day life for her blog.
through her painting, audrey explores different techniques, such as
(blurring and chiaroscuro,) to question the whole meaning of the
female figure and how a single, subtle gesture can express the essence
of femininity. i love the palpable loneliness and the quiet
shadow-kissed figures in her artwork.
by contrast, audrey's photography is comprised of
snapshots from her day to day life, which she spends with
her husband, ben, between their flat in london and cottage
on her family's land in france, (which also contains dreamy
holiday spot, la maison vielle.) audrey is happy to be
living her big dream as a full time artist, and that
shows in everything she touches.
now comes the fun part:
audrey has generously offered to give away one of her
brilliant prints to one of my very lucky readers!!
