The works presented on this website were created by the artist, Reine-Marie Vergnes.
Reine-Marie graduated from Pratt Institute in New York City. She went on to work in advertizing in New York, then in Marseille, France. In 1992, she was at last able to express herself with her painting and exhibited in French galleries, in Cannes, Mougins, Valbonne and Antibes as well as in Florida, USA.
After working for twenty-two years in her charming gift shop in Cannes, where she sold her small painting to tourists, she also developed a creative embroidery business. Using a professional machine that allowed the creation of designs by computer, her work took on a whole new look.
Selling her business in 2017 gave her more time to develop a different style that is a reflection of her soul and personal spiritual development. Today Reine-Marie’s works utilize an original concept using mixed media, to produce, what she likes to call “Happy Art” or “Art Infused with Love”. The use of painting, printing, 3D relief, collage as well as embroidery, truly creates a unique ambiance in her work.
