About Francoise Dugourd-Caput

Françoise Dugourd-Caput was born in 1954, in Algeria, from French parents, and when she was 10 years old, she and her family moved back France.
She has always been inspired by the paintings she saw in art books, particularly the works by French Impressionist painters. Her passion for drawing was further fueled by the paintings and sculptures of the Renaissance, exhibited in the Louvre museum.

Her family, however did not encourage her wish to study painting and art, so, following her parents’ wishes, Dugourd-Caput studied nursing, eventually becoming a psychotherapist.
Although she worked in this capacity for many years, she never stopped drawing or painting, studying techniques in local art classes. For the most part, Dugourd -Caput is a self-taught artist.

Since 1991, she has participated in art exhibitions in various cities in France, becoming a professional artist in 2007. She has continued to exhibit mainly in France, and many of her works are also found in private collections in Germany and Portugal.
In 2010, she was honored with the prestigious Le Prix du Public at a special exhibition in Castres, France.

Since childhood, Dugourd-Caput has been attracted to warm colors and the magic of natural light. Her abstract paintings reflect her love for color, light and shadow, inspired by nature and the elements.

From her work as a nurse and psychotherapist, her skills of observation and empathy have enabled her to capture authentic emotions in her traditional portrait painting, particularly in the eyes, which are, as it is said “the windows to the soul”

She has a deep feeling and understanding of the many contradictions and levels of contrasts observed from life. This insight is evident in her balance of color and light seen in her abstract paintings and the infinite variety of conflicting emotions conveyed in her portraits.
