Diane Gilles

Biography

Born in 1967, youngest  of  7 siblings,  she began to draw at the age of 9.  At first, she reproduced naïve and abstract drawings, and copied from patterns of her father.  She explored different techniques such as: pastels, poster paint,  Indian ink.

She discovers an interest for enamel and learns her first steps with the first wife of her father.  At the age of 11, watching her father work, she starts to discover the rudiments of  “repoussé”.  Her first work  represents young children, fishes and landscapes.  She is inspired by nature and relishes books on Art & drawing.

Always striving to improve and innovate, she is taking courses to incorporate other metals in her collection of jewellery, enamel and repoussé work.
