Elvira Amrhein, 1957 ~ L'Ange Rebelle

Amrhein transports her viewers to mystical, ethereal realms with her intriguing paintings. Born to an artistic family, Amrhein now lives in France. Previously a hobbyist, she became a full-time painter in 2002. Amrhein’s paintings expertly fuse light and texture with elements of spirituality and melancholy, and have won many awards in France.
"My passion for painting began the day I tried to carry out a canvas. The exuberance of the material acted like a click. Painting occupied previously only my leisure because I devoted itself entirely to the evolution and the balance of my small family. The rewards obtained in the various exposures of paintings encouraged me to continue my artistic step. The change towards a more marked painting since 2002 is the result of several situations reversals in my life. When my production seemed to me finally worthy to be shown, all hesitation was fall".
