Paul Billard, 2009 guest of honour

He has been drawing since childhood and is self-taught.  He has been using pastels now for 20 years. He generally finds inspiration during his travels: the Venice carnival, India, Morocco, Egypt, as well as the wild horses of Mongolia, nudes and so on. Through  the colours and emotions of his work the artist reveals the excitement he feels for these exotic locations and vibrant scenes. He is an artist with a considerable reputation and has collected several medals and prizes.
