Annick Bouvattier is a figurative painter based in Paris. Annick captures seemingly insignificant gestures in the everyday lives of beautiful women, trivial moments, fleeting glances, words unspoken, speechless stories. She is a painter of silences, silences that many a beholder and collector has heard and savoured.


Annick was born in Nevers in Nevers, France in the mid sixties. Her father, a paediatrician and art lover, passed on to her from her early childhood his passion for painting.

In 1982, after passing her school-leaving certificate with a science major, she broke away from the family tradition of studying medecine to enrol at the “Berçot – Marie Rucki” school of fashion where, for two years, she trained as a stylist. Her works were then presented in Paris and the Villa Médicis in Rome, and were praised by professionals and published in specialist magazines.

At the beginning of 1990, she decided to turn to painting exclusively. After two years of self-training, she became in 1992 the pupil of Pierre Ramel, Mac Avoy’s disciple and bursar who taught her the technique of using a knife to paint with oil, which she uses in smoothed out form to achieve an effect of transparency.

Annick painted women, often alone, in almost empty flats, but furnished mainly by shadows and light. Young, pretties, they live their femininity without false modesty, unconcerned by the looks of others.
