FRANCOISE CHAURAY is a watercolorist native of France where she is actually living.

In the eighties she had been moving with her family into the United States of America for 12 years.

She studied Art at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft (NJ) with two wonderful and well known artists: Herb Edwards and Lillia Frantin. They help her to acquire a solid foundation.
She obtained an Associate Degree in Art & Humanities from BCC and started to expose her work in local galleries within Monmouth County.

She also became a member of the Guild Of Creative Art of Shrewsbury where the late Pat Lafferty (AWS) of Rumson was teaching watercolor.
After two years studying the medium under her tutelage, Francoise realized that watercolor turned into the greatest passion of her life.

She further received several awards throughout art exhibits and finest shows being held in France.

Today, her aim is to share with the viewer the beauty that is all around us and all those surreal moments that transcend our daylife.

At the present time, originals are not offered for sale through the Fine Art America secure checkout system.
Please contact the artist directly to inquire about purchasing an original aquarelle.
