Isabelle Gautier grew up in west of France and is now living in Atlanta GA.
Strongly influenced by contemporary American Expressionist painters like Robert Motherwell or Franz Kline, but also by tachist artists like Jackson Pollock or French artist Pierre Soulages, Gautier seems to be fearless and uses bold, striking minimalist marks to express what she calls " the futility of words" .
Gautier's Expressionist work started very colorful and becomes more gestural and lyrical with time.
After her college studies, art classes at Les Beaux-Arts in France and having her two kids, she moved to the United States in 1999.
After few years of adjustment Gautier began her professional career and was soon represented by galleries within the United States. Her work has been featured in TV series, National Art Shows, 2013 HGTV Smart Home, Neiman Marcus Pop-up Gallery, Marietta/Cobb Museum.
Most of Gautier's collectors are in The United States and Europe. Atlanta Fine Home Sotheby's International Realty, The City of Milton (GA) new City Hall , Embassy Suites Downtown Greenville, SC, Kennedy-Douglas Center in Florence (AL) and Isiginy-Le-Buat City Hall in Normandy are just few of them.
Gautier is proud to support her community donating paintings or time to local organizations and charities mostly aiming to help children and women causes.
