-  News   -  Contemporary Art Exhibition: Animae by Gilliane Warzée (BE) 14/12-28/01/24
Gilliane Warzée was born on December 19, 1977 in Bastogne, Belgium. She is a nurse at the Kirchberg Hospital but is also a graduate of the Institute des Beaux-Arts Arlon, where she studied painting from September 2006 to June 2009.
Portraits are her favorite theme. Faces fascinate her. They are the physical reflection of the inner self.
