by Monique Lemaire
Monique Lemaire began her career in oil painting after her
retirement from her work as an economist in France.
She has traveled
extensively throughout Europe and the United
States of America, Africa and recently visited the Maldive Islands in a quest for new ideas and in
search of new inspirations for her work in oils.
Her paintings have
been exhibited in Alsace, France, especially in Colmar, and in the
Capital District, New York State. She shares her time between Colmar and Burnt Hills, New York.
She prefers to
work in oils but has done commissioned frescoes as well.
