Marie-Cécile is a French artist who lived in the Detroit suburbs. “Being French, I think I see Detroit differently. Each time I go there, I feel inspired. My objective through my paintings is to illustrate this feeling and energy I get when I visit Detroit”. She spent afternoons wondering around the city taking pictures. Each one of her paintings is inspired from the photos that she has taken. 

Marie-Cécile paints with two medium: watercolor and acrylic. She finds these two techniques quite complementary. Watercolor is more spontaneous and requires a perfect knowledge of the water cycle whereas acrylic is much more flexible.
