Christophe Cardot
Edgewater, FL

"Working in Oil Pastel on various surfaces, I use the Golden Ratio to create the composition of my landscape paintings. I find inspiration in nature, from the Impressionist palette and Pointillist technique. My greatest desire is to respect the quality of light, mood and tonality in my work. "

Leaving his native France in 2003, Christophe arrived in Florida, where he decided to achieve his dream of a full time art career. Primarily a self-taught artist, he has studied with Florida artists. During his honeymoon in Key West, he realized that he had found his spiritual home in Florida, with its warmth, color and intense light.

Plein air painting is his preferred method of painting, as he feels there is no better way to capture the hidden colors of nature revealed by the changing light. His paintings can be found in collections throughout the United States and Europe. He is also teaching pastel classes in Florida and workshops in USA and France.
