“Maryvonne has brought so much honor to the town of Gordonsville with her wonderful talent. She has contributed to Gordonsville to become a destination town..”
“Maryvonne LaParlière paints magical murals…”
“Maryvonne brings joy and beauty and puts all her heart in her work…”
“My dear friend, may you never change and always stay so positive and free. I miss you sincerely”
“Those (works of art) are absolutely gorgeous!…”
“She was one of the precursors and perhaps, according to Victorian Magazine, the one to establish the concept of an entire scene on furniture…”
It is rare that I give a recommendation, but Maryvonne LaParlière is really the best I have seen in America. Her scene paintings have depth, correct perspective and are beautifully done.
“Maryvonne’s talent has brought the French “Art de vivre” to Virginia. It complements and blends with a countryside that Thomas Jefferson had enriched with his vision nurtured by his travels trough France during his tenure as ambassador.
No other artist is versatile as Maryvonne LaParlière for she has the talent to bring a “French Flair” to homes that have witnessed much of America’s History. She can turn a bland wall into a 18th century pastoral scene that could be found in any French castle. Her hand painted furniture could have their place in an elegant boudoir. Her paintings can hang in galleries anywhere in the world, she can translate on canvas impressionist as well as classical masterpieces.
“La personnalité exceptionnellement chaleureuse et sensible de Maryvonne Laparlière trouve son accomplissement dans ses créations artistiques toutes fortes et empruntes d’une grace intemporelle. Rien ne heurte, rien ne désoriente. La communication est immédiate entre l’artiste et celui qui admire ses oeuvres. Cette façon d’aller droit à l’esprit et au Coeur s’appelle le talent. Maryvonne en a énormement.”
“I was compelled to write to you and express how absolutely beautiful your work is. It took my breath away.”
“I am in awe in front of your talent. You would be an example to follow…”
“Your work is stunning. I think I read about you in magazines of decoration. You are a truly talented and gifted artist. Thank you for the inspiration.
“If one day you ever want apprentices, I will be willing to sleep in a barn and just eat bread to learn from you. I study in Paris at the Institut Superieur de Peinture Decorative, and my teacher said that no one compare to you in France… and I totally agree. Thank you for your talent.”
“Il est plutôt rare et de fait, il ne m’était encore jamais arrivé d’écrire à une parfaite ou un parfait inconnu. Mon épouse et moi tenons à vous féliciter pour votre travail superbe; on y voit un talent à toute épreuve. Vos oeuvres font rêver.”
“Wow! I am sure you know how fabulous your work is and I am sure it is nice to hear it. I am also an artist, though it is strange saying that to someone of your skill. I just wanted to say that I hope one day I will be half skilled as you are.”
“Your work is utterly inspiring to me! I have spend much time pouring over your work and I am amazed at your freedom to be so creative. You have a wonderful talent….Any plan for a book?” Donna J.
“I just wanted to send a compliment on the work done at Goleta Valley Hospital. I am looking at the mural and am absolutely in awe over the beauty of the mural on the second floor of the building. The colors and details are quite incredible. Just wanted to thank you for brightening my day.”
