Essentially self-taught, Virginie Charamnac discovers this passion to paint from the adolescence. She tries then several techniques (pastel, watercolor) but very fast, the oil paint imposes upon her.
In its debuts, his work concentrates mainly around the landscape. Then, inspired by painters as Maurice Denis or Norman Rockwell, but also by photographers as Doisneau, Boubat or Steichen, she begins, in the 90s, to work on staging subjects of the children.
The first one of these subjects represents two children to the museum, of back and admiring Van Gogh's picture. This painting will be the brilliant point of departure of the realization of a representational universe around the childhood, appropriate for the Artist.
Of a big freshness, cheerful, colored, full of diverse situations and borrow of intense feelings, reflecting the life, all this varied palette, crosses from then on the work of Virginie Charamnac, the Artist so congealing the present moment to remember for ever.
He is true, the work of the Artist inevitably makes echo for this Pierre Bonnard's quotation :
