About the art
This series of paintings is inspired by the relationship between the artist and the forest of Fontainebleau. Every day, the artist goes there to make sketches, to walk, to dialogue with the forest. The initial sketches are made on the spot in different mediums (watercolor, pencil, gouache, ink, pastels). These are notes that will be used later to create from these traces and the memory of the moment lived with the place. The final painting is then done in the studio. The canvas is varnished and ready to hang. It is delivered with its certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.

Clerget shares with us a sparkling vitality of nature which is one of her sources of inspiration.
