an exceptional talent
The artist Céline Ouimet is originally from Canada. She came to Europe as a young woman, lived in France for a long time and has been living in the beautiful coastal town of Castiglione della Pescaia since 2010.
You can tell from her pictures that she has become very fond of this Tuscan seaside resort (to which we too have lost our hearts).
The subjects of your painting tell of the wonderful landscape of the surrounding area, of the sea and of the people who live there or who spend their holidays there.
It depicts both beach life in summer and the quiet days during the other seasons. Her pictures impress with their attention to detail. The viewer thinks he can literally feel the atmosphere, listen to the wind, smell the salt and hear the sound of the sea in the background.
We have known Céline personally for years and are always fascinated by her great talent. If you want to get to know her better, follow her on Instagram Céline Ouimet or visit her studio in Ponti di Badia, a district of Castiglione della Pescaia which is just outside the village, on your next vacation in Tuscany.
In order to maintain contact with friends and art lovers in these extraordinary times, Céline came up with something.
Once a month she offers one of her paintings in a private auction. She sends a photo of the picture to all of her email contacts, sets a base price (around a third of the market value) and a date up to which it is possible to participate in the auction via email. The picture is sold to the highest bidder.
