My name is Isciane Minnig, I am 23 years old and I live in Gruyère in Switzerland. I painted my very first oil canvas in the spring of 2020 and I learned this technique for the first time in the fall of 2019 with Till Rabus, one of my teachers at the Académie de Meuron. I have a lot of gratitude towards him. I would say that it was he who gave me this mad desire to paint in oil. It was like a "click" for me and since then I have not let go of my brushes. I use several techniques to express my art such as: linocut, Indian ink, ecoline, collage, acrylic, etc…but I must admit that for the moment it is with painting in oil that I can best express myself. In reality, I have been drawing since I was little, as soon as the urge arises. From an early age, I was attracted by everything related to the art world, colors, shapes, materials and especially nature. Plant beauty has always inspired me a lot, which is why we often find it in my works. After my compulsory school, I decided to complete a training as a florist and then I had the chance to take full-time courses for a year at the “Académie de Meuron” in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. Without this experience, I would not have dared to leave the frame of the A4 page. Painting has somehow become my language to best express the things for which I cannot find words.
