Who is Flo de Bretagne? 


               Flo was born and raised in Paris. She studied art in Paris, and in 2005 she moved with her family to Palo Alto, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley.

               After completing two Masters degrees in business and law, Flo decided to do what she was truly passionate about: art. She studied at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris. She then embarked on her journey as a professional artist.

               "I grew up being a good student wanting to have a 'serious job.' However, once I was done with my studies, a health crisis made me realize that I could no longer put aside what I truly loved: bringing hope to other people through art.  I have found that homes with bare walls can be dull and dreary, schools are often gloomy places, and hospitals can be scary for patients undergoing treatment. Through art, I hope to offer a sense of peace and joy that radiate from my colorful, uplifting paintings and murals. " - Flo

                Flo is an artist who wants to build community, inspire joy, highlight beauty in the world, and lift up people with her artworks.

                Flo can travel for any project, and ships her paintings worldwide. All her paintings are originals. She can create commissioned artwork based on your specific needs and desires. 

               Between 2020 and 2020 she created more than 100 murals mostly at low-income schools in the San Francisco Bay Area.

                She explains more about her process and inspiration, in her blog here.

          "After studying business and law, I went to Art school in the 5th arrondissement, near Le Pantheon, one of the oldest parts of Paris with Rue Mouffetard, Place Monge, and Sorbonne University. It was heaven! Definitely my best years in Paris. I used to visit one or two exhibitions a week, from Le Louvre Museum, to Dubuffet Foundation, Rodin or Marmottan Museums. There was always something new and beautiful to discover. I could never stop. I was inspired with every visit through the artwork I could see as well as the architecture, the mix of old Parisian buildings (the Haussmann style) and the modern (François Mitterrand Library, Centre Georges Pompidou, Cartier Foundation, etc). In-between my visits I would rest in cafés, and sketch as I sipped a hot drink. I sketched people who sat next to me or who stood at the counter having a quick coffee. My sketches were very fast and spontaneous, as I tried to capture the atmosphere." - Flo
