Name: Michèle Duretête-Brodel
Bio: Michèle Duretête-Brodel worked as a social worker for thirty years. In 2003, thanks to an encounter with a artist and teacher Stéphane Jadot, master of trompe l'oeil, Michèle resumed a youthful passion for painting. In 2006 she discovered pastels, particularly suited to portraits, her preferred subject. She has been a prize-winner at St. Aulaye three years in succession (2009 – 2010), and at the Concours National “Beaux-Arts” de la BNPP, Paris, 2010 and 2011.
In July 2009, she did a course in live portraiture with master pastellist Gwenneth Barth. Michèle Duretête-Brodel is a member of Pastel en Périgord and of its committee. She also holds membership in ASPAS, Pastel en Bretagne, and Art du Pastel en France.
