Françoise Vèron Stamp a.k.a. Boise
My life has been a fortunate road with many horizons and possibilities. It has led me here, living in this Canadian land that has adopted me and that I have adopted. From my childhood in the highest inhabited region of the French Alps to the shores of Vancouver, I had the privilege to live in various countries and meet amazing individuals. Every time collecting new experiences, knowledge and perceptions along with a couple languages.I attended the French National Fine Art School in the 80’s and learned classic and conceptual arts. Until recent years, most of my artistic efforts were geared towards my children and my hobbies, awesome Halloween costumes, sculpted birthday cakes, flamenco dresses, custom made bead jewels etc. In 2011, after selling my small business, I decided to fulfill my dream of being a committed artist. I have produced, sold and exhibited number of pieces in shop settings, various artistic events and markets such as Lab Art, Vancouver Home and Design Show, and Commercial Street Café. I currently exhibit oil paintings at Float Sense in Burnaby. Eight months ago, I started to paint doodles on my friend’s bodies at the beach. I knew right away I wanted to realize complex body painting projects. And that is what I did! It has been so far, a rich and fulfilling endeavor and I wish to continue growing in that amazing medium that gives me great satisfaction. Ephemeral Art has always been one form I cherish and want to give my artistic soul to.
I am very excited to participate to the AWE 2017 body painting competition, which is my second competition so far.
Thank you to all who attend and participate!
