Born in South Germany (Constance) in 1957.
Elke Thiébaut resides in eastern France since 1994.
As far as she could think, she loved to draw, create.
The final installation in France allowed her to find a space to practice her painting, which has dominated her life since then.
At her beginnings she painted mostly abstracts, whose possibilities she explored by experimenting with various techniques such as acrylic, oil and watercolour.
Even today abstraction is part of her pictorial universe, even if her penchant for figurative has become more and more assertive.
Elke Thiébaut loves to tell stories in her painting. Her work is very personal and does not fit into any boxes.
The first thing that strikes you when you look at her paintings is the intense colors, probably a reflection of his perception of this world.
Her paintings are nourished by her memories, her current entourage, the people she meets, an atmosphere or social or political news.
The human being is the center of his figurative work.
These characters or portraits sometimes invented, sometimes inspired by people who have marked it positively or negatively, often possess a head disproportionate to the rest of the body,
This underlines the importance she attaches to the face which for her is the central point of an individual (even when it is an animal).
