Sophie Séjourné, a French artist, began her career in La Rochelle, France. She then went to Paris, where she exhibited in Galerie Ariane over a ten year period. She now works from her studio in Dumbo in Brooklyn, New York. Séjourné spent her childhood on the small island of Ile de Ré surrounded by the sea, which continues to give her inspiration.
She has studied at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Poitiers, France, and she is a graduate of The Art Students League in New York City, which has her work in its private collection.
In 1992 Séjourné represented the artists of France at an international artists symposium in Germany. She has prepared several different media projects for public spaces in La Rochelle and has appeared on radio and TV in her country.
In addition to exhibiting widely throughout France and Europe, in Mexico, in Asia and in the United States, Séjourné has been developing a new concept in which she revisits the technique of collage, integrating postcards and photos she has received from family and friends (travel/vacation) into her geometric and lyric vocabulary.
