• Swann paints

  • my name is Swann

     

    I’m an abstract painter.

    I’m influenced by the colors and energy of my life, and the life around me; the nature, my family, my life of travels and the humans I meet, the countries I lived in and the ones I’ve visited… whether source of laughs or tears, I try to absorb and depict them whole.

    I seek to create abstract paintings as an exercise of letting go; letting go the flow of my emotions and the viewer’s emotions; to the point where you don’t exactly know how to express what you’re looking at, but you deeply feel it in your soul.

    As the viewer, I want you to feel that raw emotion, that energy and how it interacts with everything around us. This is the beauty of the abstract painting, when the viewer explores in the painting what the artist has defined. That’s what I’m trying to create with my paintings.

    ---

    Born in France and raised in multiple countries of Africa, art has always been part of Swann’s education, scouring the museums all over the world with her parents. That’s really when she was a student in France that she began to paint for herself. Using big advertising cardboards found on the sidewalks, she was an adept of mixed media.

    She lived few years in France and England and a long time in what she considers her home, Montreal (Canada). She decided few years ago to move to the San Francisco Bay Area with her family.

    Having graduated in History, Sociology, and Communications Marketing, holding a Master in each of those subjects, Swann made her professional career as a digital marketer.

    Painting is however what defines her. Swann paints in abstract style, in acrylics, using multiple layers to enhance the texture, manipulating the stunning effects of the resin or applying her creativity to inks on different mediums.

    Swann is currently living in Northern California.

     
    All the paintings are for sale. Contact me to know more.
    I would also be happy to create a painting especially for you, based on what you like.
