Valérie de Sarrieu is a French artist who lives and works in Toulouse, France. She has devoted six years to the restoration of mural paintings of the French monuments including the cathedrals in Cahors and in Albi. With a bachelor’s degree in History of Art, she has spent the 4th and 5th years of her study at the Toulouse School of Fine Arts. In the 90s, she has continued studying with Robert Thon and Maurice Mélat. Today she mainly works on outdoor paintings called “sur le motif” (en plein air). She summarizes her approach as the following: “working on the place and its responsiveness, on the light of that precise moment, and its simplest and fairest reproduction”.
