About meAbout me
About my inspiration and my paintings 

I am Audrey Dubois and I live in New Zealand from August 2018. We come from Niort, close to La Rochelle, on the west coast, in France. It is a new challenge to live in New Zealand with my husband and my 2 children. We think it is a good way to discover a new culture and learn English language.

When I was young, I loved drawing. When I was 35 years old, I decided to take some lessons !! And I love it. It is a real passion.

We lived not so far on the beach, in France. I love going on the beach to hear the waves. It sounds good for my spirit! It is maybe why I love painting some fish, sail and lady on the beach and landscapes. I prefer to draw contemporary and modern pictures. I am a very positive and enthusiastic woman. I think that is why my painting are always very colored.

I had never think to do some exhibitions ! My first time was in New Zealand ! You can discover my acrylic and pastel paintings online, during markets and in several restaurants.

You can order your special painting. I can send overseas !
