About

Helene Fleury, artiste.jpeg

 

 

Portraying, sculpting, designing and art directing trompe l'oeil architectural murals have made up the major part of a busy visual arts career.

Clay, discovered at the age of eleven, was my first love and my first livelihood. Then, the desire the for other kind of expertise as well as the life of an artist relegated it to the background to finally return to it. ​

From Catalonia to Kamouraska and Yucatan, between painting and clay, the story continues.
