Meet MB Boissonnault of Los Angeles, CA
Originally from Bennington, Vermont, MB Boissonnault has been living and working as a painter in Venice, California for nineteen years.
She studied at the KunstAkademie Düsseldorf under Dutch artist Jan Dibbets. Traces from the different environments in which she’s lived are visible in her work. She’s inherited the precision and detail of the German painting tradition and mixed it in with the Californian optimism and predilection for light and freedom. Boissonnault works in oil and synthetic paints because “turning a two-dimensional space into an emotional landscape is the biggest challenge I [can] think of.” It is important for her that her work impacts viewers and that they are drawn in and feel an emotion.
Being an artist isn’t necessarily a matter of choice for Boissonnault. “If you’re a painter it’s not an existence that you choose. You just have to do it.”
She’s known that she is an artist since birth and has made it a professional pursuit for over 20 years. And she has received much recognition for her pursuit. Her work has been featured in interior design magazines such as LUXE and has been a popular choice for film and TV.
Collectors include Deutsche Bank, Tyssen, Siemens, the Tennessee State Museum, Chase Bank, the Matisse Family, and Roma Downey +Mark Burnett.
