Name: Jacques Ousson
Bio: Jacques Ousson was born in 1937 at Douai (France).
In 1939, he went to live with his grandparents at Ousson sur Loire, a rural commune of Loiret, 160 km south of Paris, where he spent his childhood, and whence his pseudonym. After secondary school in Paris, he trained at the l'École des Métiers d'Arts. In 1969, he returned to Ousson, far from the madding Paris crowd. Ever since he has devoted himself to drawing, watercolour and pastel.
