I was born in Tahiti, lived in France, and have been living in Australia since the early 1980’s. I am a local Kuranda artist established since 1990.
Art has always been part of my life. Having an artist Mum meant I was always surrounded by artwork, the scent of oil paints and linseed oils, art tools and easels were part of my daily décor.
Experimenting throughout my career I found my style to be simple lines with layers of bold vibrant colours. My artwork takes me to places I have never been before. I want my audience to feel a sense of fascination.
I am a Contemporary French Artist. I provide Original artwork which I exhibit in my Art Studio & Gallery. Only the finest quality artist paints and materials are used for total satisfaction.
Prints and other merchandise are available only on selected artwork and are for sale through my Online Shopping Store - Redbubble, Vida and Pixels. The ONLINE collection Includes: Corporate gifts, Interior soft furnishing such as cushions, home & office décor, quilt / duvet covers, shower curtains, clothing / apparels - men, women children and much more.
Been an Artist Designer I pride myself for creating Original artwork that I can call "my own creation'. I can personalise each to suit your decor and clients needs.
Even though I live in Far North Queensland, Australia far from major cities it does not stop me. With all the technologies now days communicating and visualising a finished artwork is so easy to accomplish.
My clientele is local, national and international.
“A few discreet images of fleur-de-lys will remind you this *is* a space where the spirit of France is alive even at the edge of the world...This gallery is such a great addition to Kuranda's eclectic and vibrant art scene. Every piece by Didi is highly individualistic and unique.” from Diana Thoresen

"A beautiful gallery that I visited and was delighted to meet the artist herself!! She was covered in paint and seemed in the moment but was only to happy to stop and chat and give me a personal guide around her gallery. Was exquiste to see the local flora and fauna invoke such beautiful colours on canvas. Many works on the walls of this working artist's gallery give a happy and playful feel. Cant wait to add to my collection! "
