Françoise Réthoré

Bio: Françoise Réthoré was born in 1948 in Le Mesnil-en-Vallée, Maine-et-Loire. After a career as a teacher, she discovered pastels. Like Lionel Asselineau, her encounter with the French Société des Pastellistes in 2001 was to be decisive in her artistic development. She has participated in the International Festival of Pastel of Feytiat since 2001 and other conferences organized by the Société des Pastellistes.
In 2009 Françoise Réthoré was appointed Vice-Deputy Chairman of the Société des Pastellistes de France for the region of Pays de Loire. She helped organize the first summer International du Pastel in Saint Florent-le-Vieil.
She is inspired by the river Loire, which has been an influence from childhood.
