Bio

Juliette Lepage Boisdron is born in Paris and holds a Master Degree in History of Art from Sorbonne University.

Her travels around the world from earliest childhood have left a distinct mark upon her work. She grew up and lived in exotic and contrasting countries. North China, U.S.S.R, Abu Dhabi, Pondicherry, New York, Lisbon, Paris, Singapore and Basel have been her “home” at different stages of her life.

Her professional career is therefore quite eclectic. She previously worked as an art gallery director in Singapore, an artistic agent in India, and in Paris, she was working for the website of the Fondation Cartier.

But one constant remains in her life : she has always been creating poetic paintings and contemporary Jewellery, transcribing what she has learnt from different people and different cultures.

In Paris, Juliette studied under art professor Patrice de Pracontal who was a restorer of paintings at the Louvre Museum, in Lisbon she studied jewelry technics with artist Catarina Silva, and in Singapore, she studied traditional and contemporary Chinese painting under the guidance of Pr Lim Choon Jin.

Juliette paints with Indian ink and Acrylic mainly on rice paper, in echo to the 15 years she has spent in Asia. Her creations speak about love, human relationships, the place of women in the society, motherhood, relationships between man and nature. There is no hierarchy; humans, animals, plants, they all have the same dignity of existence.

Juliette has exhibited her work across the globe; including Singapore, Thailand, U.S.A , France, and in Switzerland where she currently resides.
