Betty Kande_Portrait.png

Betty Kande  didn't study at a Fine Arts School, instead she  studied Law and International Trade in Lille.  It was when she  arrived in France that she  started drawing because there was a painting workshop not far from the Lille II law faculty.

It was important for her  to learn the fundamentals of Art before she  could do what she  really wanted. She  has  since lived in many countries: Ivory Coast, South Africa, the United States and Senegal but she  has  always attended workshops to acquire new techniques.

Her works show the beauty, the strength, the pride or the identity of Africa.

All these beautiful things and all these little free pleasures, like the sight of a beautiful landscape that one would tend to neglect, not to appreciate at its fair value or worse to throw away.
