On a quiet street up in Montmartre there is a gallery, an artist, un atelier that was one of the highlights of my stay in Paris.
Atelier Gabrielle
18 rue Gabrielle
75018 Paris
No website…. yet.

Her name is Virginie and she is charming charmante

See the iPad there? We discussed how very, very useful it is and agreed that we had both been very skeptical at first but were total converts now!

Some of the tools of her trade. She paints, does illustration and also teaches art to both children and adults.

We bought several aquarelles and can’t wait to frame them. I think they will have a place of honor in our dining area… where we can see them many times a day!

Virginie is lovely. And, for me, the opportunity to talk to her in French for a full half hour was a treat. I urged her to work on a website, or a blog. She is a busy lady and is now working on illustrating a book. Can’t wait to see it next year!
Merci mille fois Virginie.
