Biography

It is said that the paintings created by Morgane, like the Fairy from the Celtic legends, are pure magic that send out stars and bring out the life in her subjects...

Renowned for capturing the true essence and spirit of Nature in amazingly detailed and realistic miniatures, Morgane has developed her talent with an intensive observational work and by studying the technique of hyperrealism masters such as Robert Bateman, Carl Brenders or Terry Isaac.

Morgane’s passion & fascination for animals mingle at the tip of her brushes with her acrylic and watercolor pigments. Desert horses take a large place in her heart and artwork but she is also captivated by the grace, gentleness and nobility of other creatures.

Morgane’s art has won several prizes and awards, including a place in the finals of the 2011, 2012 & 2013 BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition. Her work can be found in private collections across North America and Europe and she also offers custom portraits.
