Wildlife contemplation is the origin of Amelie's work. She plays with pencil, watercolor, oil and acrylics to express alternately finenesse, power and emotion given to her by the animal world. Since an early age, Amélie observes Nature to open her mind to new sensations and feed her creations.

 

Amélie Le Meur is a french painter born in Rouen in 1981. She discovers pencil drawing and grows a fascination for animals at a very early age. She begins to take visual arts classes at 5 years old and exhibits her first dog portraits when she is only 13.

 

Born in a family of hunters, she draws her inspiration from wildlife she discovers growing in Normandy and later from her travels to Scotland and Africa. The migratory artist studies Applied Arts and sets up her studio near the Alps in Italy.

 

At 20, Amélie takes her first steps in major national wildlife art fairs and exhibits her paintings in renowned galleries in Paris. Her works are exported to Europe, USA and South Africa ; so that since the age of 22, Amélie is fully dedicated to Wildlife Art.

 

She devotes herself to watercolor, a difficult technique of which the transparence and precision of these paints allows her to retranscribe with lightness and fidelity the wonder of nature around her.

 

After a sculpture class in Accademia d'Arte of Florence, Amélie moves her studio in Western Paris. Between brushstrokes, she follows the Art History courses at the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Paris which give her a new taste for canvas painting and inspire new creations.

 

True admirer of Leon Danchin's classic portraits or Carl Brenders' wildlife paintings, Amelie likes realism and has the intention to paint wildlife with authenticity.

 

Attention to detail and purity of lines are the characteristics wildlife art amateurs like to find in her work.

 

The eye of the faithful dog to his master, the fragility of a bird's feathers, the tranquility of a deer in the Scottish moors or the muscles of a suddenly jumping impala in the african bush ... these are the emotions Amelie wants to share.

 

 

 

"Three operations :

View, operation of the eye.

Observe, operation of the mind.

Contemplate, operation of the soul.

Whoever comes to this third part enters the field of art."

 

(Emile Bernard, Propos sur l'art)
