Lucette was born and educated in Belgium. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Art in Mons in 1967. A short time later she married her husband Louis, also a well respected artist, and together they embarked on a journey that changed their lives forever. Their travels took them to many exotic places but they finally settled in Noumea where they spent several years painting volcanic landscapes. Next up was Australia, where they realized immediately they had found the place to spend the rest of their days living and painting. They settled first at Noosa, then on the Gold Coast. Lucette exhibited throughout the 70’s and 80’s in the US, French Polynesia, Belgium and in every Australian state. She was well known for her delightful romantic, impressionist paintings featuring children playing in beautiful garden settings.
Lucette’s choice of medium has become more elaborate in recent years, combining oils, acrylics and inks to create a symphony of multimedia, painting while lost in the hypnotic melodies of classic composers such as Chopin and Mozart. “My mind is the studio and the canvas is my mirror’ she explains. “I feast on what the world has to offer and then I sleep and let my dreams cast their magic. On awakening, I use my hands as the vehicle of expression”.
