From City Dweller to Country Artist
Born in 1976 in the Paris suburb of Suresnes, Orel has studied, worked and traveled in France, England, and Lebanon. With her husband and their two sons, she is now firmly rooted in the Causse, the limestone steppe of south-central France, her mind teeming with creative contrasts and artistic projects. Her smile implies that to be an artist is the fulfilled dream of the child who evolved hands-on among the raw materials of her art at the side of her painter-sculptor mother. An evolving potential in which Orel makes the raw material come alive, creatively playing with volumes.
