About the Artist
Isabelle Gautier was born and grew up in Normandy, a few miles from The Landing Beaches in north-western France. Working as a professional artist over the past fifteen years, she has paused long enough to raise her children having moved to Milton, Georgia in 1999 with her husband where she lives and works today.
Her early artistic development was inspired by a love of nature, color and design. Influenced by the French impressionist artists of the 19th century, Gautier has a strong passion for 20th century expressionist painters as well. She embraces tachism, a style of painting adopted by some French artists from the 1940’s involving the use of dabs or splotches of color or poured acrylic. The approach is similar to abstract expressionism. Her extensive travels across all continents have left a lasting impression on her prolific oeuvre . Her work has a distinctive style that employs a rich balance of vibrant colors and neutrals, abstraction and representation, movement and calm that transitions beautifully from her landscapes and abstracts to her flower paintings.
Isabelle’s works have been featured in the TV Show “Christy Knows Best”, Southern Appalachian National Show, 2013 HGTV Smart Home, Neiman Marcus Gallery, Marietta/Cobb Museum, Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts and the Atlanta Fine Home Sotheby's International Realty art collection.
Gautier is proud to support her community donating countless paintings or time to local organizations and charities mostly aiming to help children and women causes.
