Les Femmes Artistes Showcase
We share our light. We create change in a world that that doesn't always want to change. We bring to light things hidden.
Les Femmes Artisteste came about when Valery Larson noticed that many of her amazing women artist friends were not playing with their art and with a desire to create an outlet and encouragement for them to get back to what made them the happiest, came up with the idea to create a women's artist salon that would allow for opportunities to share their work with the community at large and support each other on a personal level with regular gatherings. We are now proud to offer our online showcase of these amazing women artists.
Our work is coming for you to peruse, enjoy and if you so wish, purchase.
