Michèle Ulmann has been living in the Var for more than 35 years and has been painting in Ollioules, a city and a craft centre for the past 15 years. This Provence, which she learned to love madly, inspires her every day. A great diversity of nuances is displayed on his paintings and the landscapes burst with colours like a ripe fruit. She has always used oil, a material that allows her to use nuances, fades, a work that she describes as "sensual".
"From sketches made during my walks, I tell a story, the story of a place I loved. Little inhabited, my paintings are like haste of peace to which I aspire. When I come back to the studio, I don’t think about anything, the colours become and are my backup. I like to associate poetry with my canvases, it gives each of my paintings an evocative title."
