About Catherine VILLA

French Artist, I live and work just near Paris. If you come in France, I will be very happy and proud to show you my studio and artwork.
As far as I can remember, people interest me. Not only "people" but their history, their emotions, human behavior, HUMAN BEING and everything that happens between them and inside them. Psychologist, sculptor or painter, I always turn around this theme and it is really what underlies my artistic research.
