About the Artist
Mireille Fournier is a California based Swiss-born artist, a journeying world traveler in body and in spirit. Mireille has tasted true diversity in colors and facets by spending parts of her life in many places: from Germany to Tahiti and the South Seas, to South America and Australia. Since 1995 her home is in the Los Angeles area with her Family.
Mireille has also derived inspiration from people, characters and life stories through her remarkable career as an acclaimed massage therapist to high profile clientele in Hollywood and from around the globe. Her passion for life, love, and friendship has always sought and found expression through artisan ways with the decor, food, plants, crafts and even relationships. Once her talent touched brush and canvas, the way was paved. Humble and self-taught beginnings turned soon into serious cultivation of extraordinary skill, and into discipleship with the Great Ones in the field. She has studied and being personally mentored by acclaimed Plein Air Painters such as New Zealand Artists Richard Robinson, John Crump, and Top Carmel Plein Air Artist Scott Hamill and Portrait Artist Daggi Wallace etc. Her inordinate capacity as an artist has turned into a way of life.
Mireille is fully devoted to her growth and exploration of the visual arts in various styles and techniques. She enjoys exploring a range of painting styles in realism, impressionism, and abstract with oils, pastels, charcoal and pencil drawing.
The inspiration for her work is derived not only from the many places to which she has lived, traveled and the experiences gained with varying world cultures, but also from the special moments of everyday life, which include raising a son with autism.
Mireille’s fine art enjoys welcome and praise from a far-reaching audience. She also accepts commissioned orders that range from pets, landscapes, and memories to photographs, as well as other personal inspirations. Her effervescent spirit and her ability to attune lets her breathe life into whatever is meaningful to her client.
