Agnes van GaalenI am a Dutch painter living in the heart of France in Burgundy since 1998. My husband Bas and I travelled a lot, nowadays less and living happily in La Charité sur Loire. In 2009 we have opened a Cultural Center for workshops in Art, called Atelier Faubourg I am lucky to meet here people from all over the world, they come to our place for the workshops we organize. In 2008 I’ve set-up as co-founder the art-group “Morvan Artistique,” 20 artists working in and around Parc du Morvan – Burgundy – France.

During my travels, before I settled down in France, I made Aquarelle paintings in the so called technique, “Wash and Line” with a travel painting kit and in small sizes. Now I am so happy with my spacious studio, with lots of room to work at a larger size as well, and it is here I give my Workshops.

I love to work on Paper, Carton and Canvas.  My work is in Aquarelle, Acrylic and Oil paint mixable with water. Style is Mixed Media / Collage / Monotype.  I like to re-use the material I’ll find at the many brocantes and old houses here in France, such as old pics and wall-paper.

My inspiration is Nature, Travel, Signs & Symbols and Decorations from all over the world, music, films, and a lot more……………..
