Painter and illustrator living near the forest of Broceliande, Séverine Pineaux draws fantastic worlds, inspired by mythology and tales and closed to the celtic culture.
With watercolour or oil, she paints poetic visions where the nature is omnipresent. The theme of tree-men, plant-creatures and fabulous animals appears regularly in her art. Mechanical parts and steampunk gearings are mixed with leaves and branches to gather the past and the future. Her work on the enchanted cats brings a touch of sweet humor at this magic universe.
Her paintings tend to be a walk in a dream telling silent stories. Staged in her books, they become actresses and set of a theater made of paper. By mixing trees and human beings, plants and animals, Séverine Pineaux evokes the links and the unity of the world suggested by the ancients spiritualities as by the contemporary science.
Rewarded by numerous awards, Séverine Pineaux published “Ysambre”, “Gothic Faërie”, the “Secret Book of the Cats”, “ Smiles and Cats” and several other books, she exhibits regularly in France and in England, Belgium, USA and Russia.
