With an early passion for drawing and photography, Isabelle
Gueunet chose to study art. After obtaining a technical
certificate (BT) in Graphic Arts, she continued her art
education and worked as a designer in advertising. In 1987 she
left Paris for the countryside. While continuing to work for
advertising agencies, she created canvas models for DMC, drew
pictures of houses and made wooden jewellery.
In 1998, she set up shop in Dordogne and started the Green
Wood Gallery. Thanks to digital technology, Isabelle
Inspired by her environment she photographs doors, locks, bark,
graphics, etc. ... which she sells in the form of postcards,
framed compositions or posters. On the creative side, she
plays with squares, fragmenting her picture, she creates depth
by raising a part of the image. She also uses her computer to
create poetic photomontages.
Recently her way of working has changed. Isabelle creates
large pictures, playing with materials and colours. She
combines her photos, cuts them, gives them volume for an
amazing result, very graphic and very personal....
