About Francoise Chauray

Francoise Chauray FRANCOISE CHAURAY is a watercolorist native of France where she is actually living.

In the eighties she had been moving with her family into the United States of America for 12 years.

She studied Art at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft (NJ) with two wonderful and well known artists: Herb Edwards and Lillia Frantin. They help her to acquire a solid foundation.
She obtained an Associate Degree in Art & Humanities from BCC and started to expose her work in local galleries within Monmouth County.

She also became a member of the Guild Of Creative Art of Shrewsbury where the late Pat Lafferty (AWS) of Rumson was teaching watercolor.
After two years studying the medium under her tutelage, Francoise realized that watercolor turned into the greatest passion of her life.

She further received several awards throughout art exhibits and finest shows being held in France.

Today, her aim is to share with the viewer the beauty that is all around us and all those surreal moments that transcend our daylife.

But let's also remember that Francoise exposes on francoisechauray.com in order to sell her original handmade paintings. Therefor if you are interested in her work, please send her a short email at:
