Biographie des artistes

Odette Feller

DIn her artistic approach, Odette FELLER wants to keep a freedom of movements, colors and shapes. Odette FELLER says she is often surprised to have fun of the various effects caused by interfering in drying times.


escribing our own artistic approach is not easy.
The artist in general works for himself and alone in front of all the challenges that present themselves to him.
However, for my part, apart from the training and courses that we share for the learning of various techniques, my personal approach remains the pleasure of communicating freely without constraints and being faced with an expression of what we feel internally without seeking particularly to please, But to share what we feel using tools, here brushes and water that I chose, watercolor and acrylic for their many qualities, to transform the colors the unexpected mixes that grow At the creation .

I learned not to draw before, the first effects on my support remain my main source of inspiration to finally be able to express myself and to build my work.
I hope that the people who see my works feel this free and creative approach
