About Sophie Séjourné

Sophie Séjourné, a French-American 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 has a studio in New York City. Sejourné 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 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 taught art and art history in France.

In the past several years Séjourné has been developing a new concept in which she draws on art history and revisits the technique of collage, integrating postcards and meta-photos into her geometric and lyric vocabulary.

Séjourné’s work is, above all, about color.
