Daughter of the light and sun of Provence, Brigitte DHÔ was born in Saint Tropez on September 22, 1958. She grew up with her grandparents in the fishing village that Saint Tropez was at the time. Coming from a family of former sailors, she was immersed from an early age in the sweetness of Provence and its unique language.
She grew up in a small Provençal farmhouse that is a short distance from the well-known artist's Graniers beach. This young girl, who lives just across the alley from the home of renowned painter Paul Signac, becomes enamored with art through play and the joy of creation.
Her godmother, who quickly notices her creativity and spontaneity, nurtures this child's curiosity by introducing her to the richness of art in all its forms while accompanying her father to ceramic workshops. The passion is born in Brigitte, who from then on gives art a central place in her life.
She is convinced in her heart that she has found her path and ardently desires to attend the fine arts courses in Paris. Unfortunately, her parents do not share her aspirations and guide her towards a more traditional education. This turns out to be a failure, as she cannot bring herself to abandon her dream of fully dedicating herself to her art.
At an early age, she works as a ceramic decorator in her father's workshop, where she experiments with her first creations while taking drawing and watercolor classes with the painter Monin in Grimaud. In her younger years, she exhibited her creations in art studios in Paris. From 1984 on, she devotes herself to her art and creates her first sculptures in her studio in Provence. The birth of her daughter Sara in 1984 marked an important milestone, as a new light illuminated her work. From then on, her need to create becomes absolutely necessary for her balance. In 1993, Matthias was born. Her unconditional love for her children becomes an inexhaustible source of inspiration. In the following years, she exhibits in Provence and several other cities in France. In 1998, her encounter with the sculptor Michel Mourier, winner of the Grand Prix de Rome, marked a true turning point in her art: she discovered marble sculpture, and new horizons opened up. Until 2002, she perfected her art while attending technical training such as molding and anatomy with Professor Pierre Cerviotti and the art foundry at the Delta 960 workshop.
Her creativity and imagination then enter a new dimension as she diversifies her sources of inspiration and explores a wide range of techniques, including oil painting, plaster, bronze, and marble. Two key words characterize her work: diligent pursuit of clean lines and simplicity in order to capture the essence of movement that will give life to bronze and marble.
