c Isaure Couturier
Let me introduce myself...
Born in 1989 in Dijon, France, I studied music and began my professional life as a harpist. At 25, I realised music would still be an important part of me, but I had other interests I needed to explore. I therefore enrolled at the Ecole Française du Décor Peint in Le Mans, and graduated as painter-decorator in 2016.
Painting fulfills my professional goals; it allows me to be creative, to work with my hands, and to be part of something bigger. I particularly enjoyed working on opera sets during an internship, as it was a nice link to my musical background.
I moved to London in September 2017 as an au pair, hoping to find a way to combine painting and music.
Passionate about education, I have created an art course for children, and am part of the Artists Resource team, providing art workshops and parties. I like to encourage children's creativity and autonomy by balancing guidance and freedom, as well as fostering a caring and non-judgmental environment.
Access to the arts for disadvantaged communities is the direction I'd like my work to take in the future, as well as developing my writing.
