A self-taught French artist Catherine Shalu (Catherine Chauloux) enthusiastically studied the Renaissance Flemish school, as well as the work of great Italian artists. Despite the complete lack of academic education, the author has talent - that's enough.
Her paintings sometimes resemble a simple illustration of some children's books in the fantasy genre. And at first, the work of the artist were really crowded fantasy and unreality. Today, it has become much closer to realism. Although the feeling of a fairy tale does not leave, even when you see in front of you is quite real objects or living things. Perhaps this is due to the direct lyricism and sincerity of the Catherine.
