Lucette Bourdin was born in a small rural town in eastern France, near the Doubs river. She came to southern California in 1982 where she has dedicated her life to painting. Self-taught, she has found her way. She has acquired greater assurance as an artist as evidenced by her even bolder use of color and composition. Never timid, she has used color as an intimate expression of her inner self. These forays into her expeditions of psyche portray revelations of a playful yet sophisticated voyageur, and we are happily embarked with her on this personal journey of self discovery.
