About the artist France CONQUER

I am a French professional miniaturist using historical manuscripts painting methods. I use parchment or local artisanal paper. My art studio is located in Vertou, south of Nantes, on the banks of the Sèvre, in the Loire valley vineyard. I create unique or in small series illuminations, with an medieval or contemporary iconography. But always with noble and natural materials, such as parchment of goat, kid, sheep or calf, mineral or vegetable pigments, earths, ochres, binders based on egg clear, honey water and arabic gum. The production chain is thus mastered with artisanal recipes proven for over 1000 years!

I participated in several cultural events in the west of France during the past 10 years.


Fascinated by the world of medieval manuscripts, I have followed for over twenty years profesionnd trainings provided by professionals, illuminators, calligraphers, art schools. In 2005, I created the "Atelier du Caractère" which offered medieval calligraphy and Illumination fundamentals for communities as colleges, associations, museums, media libraries. And in 2019, I launched my arts and crafts business "Loire Valley Illuminations", also developing an event calligraphy offer in addition to my workshops.
