SBBoursot is a multidisciplinary artist based in the Côte d'Or region of Burgundy, France.
From young she displayed a natural artistic capability, which she has and continues to augment with experimentation and courses. She has exhibited in prestigious juried exhibitions in Paris and London and won the Prix Fusain at Art-Sciences-Lettres in spring 2022, and in November 2023 is a finalist of the VAA Professional Artist Award.
Attracted to interpreting people and animals – the intimate moments, experiences, emotions or situations they find themselves in, and the experience of living – she presents a version of the reality through loose and energetic strokes, blurring edges. She draws on her life experiences and travels for a commentary on aspects of life.
Painted works are mostly with acrylic paint but charcoal is a current favourite medium as she enjoys its qualities allowing her to manipulate it in a similar way to paint, conveying meaning or emotion with a few gestures, with the drama of the monochrome. She uses charcoal on paper and canvas, allowing each support to influence the effects created, sometimes adding paint, with an increasing desire to go beyond what is normally expected from charcoal art.
Her sculptures are developed intuitively, allowing an artistic freedom compared to her figurative works, and are equally created from a position of commentary on life and aging.
