Danièle Fraboulet, a French native, has been painting since childhood. As a young woman, she left France for Germany in search of a new life and adventure. There she learned German, became a biology and chemistry teacher and met her husband, a German biologist. 17 years later, she and her husband got another impulse for change, a new culture and a new life. They quit the old continent and settled for the new one.
In the USA, Danièle was able to turn her lifelong hobby into a career. She learned English, took art classes, went back to college and graduated with honors in 1991 from the Academy of Art College in San Francisco with a Bachelor of Art – Major in Illustration.
1994 she moved back to Europe with her husband and her three children. She continued painting and became a passionate watercolor artist. Indeed the fluidity and transparency of watercolor allows her to draw out the delicate, ephemeral beauty of flowers, fruits, vegetables and leaves which she conveys with subtle mastery.
She lives now in Switzerland near the beautiful city of Lausanne. Her works can be found in private collections in France, Germany, the USA and in Switzerland
