Mercedes Choufoer Art


Mercedes Choufoer Art - Acrylics - Fused Glass - Workshops


Mercedes Choufoer (born in Amsterdam,1953) has been exposed to art since her early youth by her parents friends. Sketching and playing with colors was her greatest pleasure from childhood on.
In 1969 she met the Dutch painter Fred Klein, father of the world famous Yves Klein. Via Klein in Paris, she was introduced into the world of international artists; painters and sculptors. After having an art-gallery for 8 years, she finally decided to dedicate her life to her own development as a painter. Since 2006 she works and lives in the Midi Pyrenees in France.
Inspiration has never been an issue. Mercedes is fond of landscapes; the changing of colors and seasonal light. Painting outside or in her atelier, abstract or figurative, everything can happen as long as the spirit is there! Read more…
