Director of a school of modern floral art “Jeux de Fleurs” in Bourg en Bresse, France, Marie-Francoise is the winner of both national and international floral competitions. She has published four books showcasing her creative floral compositions and is an international floral demonstrator and judge. Creative expression is her passion and she is known for moulding natural forms into new shapes, expressing the beauty of nature in unique ways.
The Eastern Cape Floral Art Association is proud to host Marie-Francoise on her first visit to Africa. She will be showcasing her skills at the Boardwalk Ampitheatre in Port Elizabeth on 23 May in a two hour floral demonstration. Intended for both professional and aspiring floral artists, the 12 floral designs Marie-Francoise will create, will be inspiring in their purity, simplicity of shape and strong clean lines.
As one of the most successful floral artists in the world, Marie-Francoise has traveled extensively with her art form and brings unique concepts from across the globe, making this a presentation not to be missed.
This world renowned French floral artist, Marie-Francoise Deprez, will be presenting a floral demonstration at the Boardwalk Ampitheatre on 23 May. Tickets cost R120 for the show which will take place from 7:30pm to 9.30pm. Contact Sandy Venter at 041 367 2333/083 788 5401 or Gail Taverner at 041 581 1386/082 651 1391 for tickets.
Editor’s Notes: I popped onto Marie-Francois’ web site to have a look at some of her work and got lost in the amazing designs showcased there. It will be very interesting to see what she does with South African Flowers and Objects. See the Marie-Francois Deprez gallery.
