About Melissende ScottdeMartinville

I'm french, but I've been living in Argentina during almost ten years. My art finds its roots in this multicultural life.

I express myself and my emotions through the poses and mouvements of the bodies I draw.
Women, their relationship to their bodies and nudity, their internal balance, their role in society and their freedom are my favorite subjects.

My creativity is directly inspired by my sensitivity to the world around me. I get my feelings out, this is my motto. It's both vital and therapeutic.

My life drawing art is spontaneous, executed in a free and confident gesture.

Drawing is my way to commitment, defending a cause, the one of women.
