Elisabeth Poiret was born in 1953 in Argenteuil. Around the age of fifteen, meeting Van Gogh and his painting was the trigger for his determination to be a painter.

After two years at the École des Beaux-Arts in Nancy, renowned in particular for teaching graphic design, she will join, on the advice of her teachers, the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Paris, where she will be admitted to the ‘workshop of Gustave Singier. She obtained her graduation diploma in 1977.

Then and for twenty years, painting, theater and poetry will be linked and will be part of his daily life.

She now devotes her time to the practice of painting, seen as a spiritual path in its own right, pursuing through a sensitive abstraction her search for “a je ne sais quoi that is achieved by adventure”, to resume the words of Jean de la Croix, a practice which allows him to relate to himself and to the world in an opening to the unexpected and in a meditative experience.

« What matters to me in the act of painting is the search, the expectation of a kind of inner truth which I have the intuition of and to which it seems essential to me to give a chance to reveal »
