Dominique has always loved the quote by Nikos Kazantzakis: "You have your brush, you have your colors, you paint paradise, then in you go". Painting birds is an easy escape from the daily world's problems.
Dominique Bachelet was born and raised in northern France. Her maternal great grandfather was a professional artist and some of his paintings hang in her home town museum. Her father drew and painted in his free time, encouraging her to draw animals and people. Dominique started taking watercolor classes when she moved to the US. As a student on a budget, Dominique enjoyed drawing and making her own posters to decorate her room. She also loves to draw and paint Christmas cards for her friends.
Dominique's first public show was at Olympia Fall Arts walk and she participated in her first Oregon show in 2017 at Philomath Open Studio Tour.
