Francoise Dugourd-Caput Artist Bio:

Françoise Dugourd-Caput From Paris With Love By Heather Friedman Although Dugourd-Caput was born in Algeria 1954, she and her family returned to France when she was very young. Her talent as an artist was quite evident during her childhood, but her parents did not encourage her. Following her parents' wishes she studied nursing and became a psychotherapist, but she NEVER stopped painting or studying techniques in local art classes. For the most part, however Dugourd-Caput is a self taught artist, inspired by the works of Master artists Van Gogh, Monet, and Contemporary artist Zao Wu Khi. Since 1991 she has participated in many fine art exhibitions throughout France and by 1991 she had become a professional artist. Devoting all her time to her art, she won the prestigious Le Prix du Public in Castres, France in 2010! Her works are in private collections in France, Germany, Portugal and in the United States, represented by AMIT Fine Art & Photography. Exhibitions in Toronto, Canada and Bologne, Italy are being scheduled for 2013. Over her years of practice as a psychotherapist, Dougard-Caput has developed strong feelings and a deep understanding of the many contradictions and levels of contrast in life. Says Dougourd-Caput "the more important for me, is to express emotions through colors contrasts and light. I talk about Mankind, contradictory, paradoxical, and capable of the worst and the best" The tools she uses to convey her messages in art, are palette knives and her fingers! The artist is often inspired by Nature, but adds "I always have human in my mind, in my heart because I love people" To see the artist's work please go to www.amitfineart.com
