Annie & Olivier Clavel

Annie Clavel

My work deals with interpretations of the unseen, the unknown and the idea of infinity. 
It is organized in terms of colors, shapes, light, and movement. Underlying my work are patterns: patterns of thoughts, emotions, and stories.

I grew up in Paris, France, where I studied mathematics and computer science. I gained a
Master’s degree in both subjects and taught them at schools throughout France and Tunisia.

I moved from France to Long Beach, California, in 2006. Once in the US, I created Les Jolis
Trésors Art Gallery in Long Beach and managed it from 2009 to 2014, curating exhibitions,
moderating art talks, and teaching art.

I have had several solo exhibitions with
– Gallery 825, in Los Angeles,
– C Gallery on Broadway in Long Beach,
– OCCCA, Orange County Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Ana,
– LA Artcore in Los Angeles
I have organized an Artists Exchange between Paris and Los Angeles, with LA Artcore. 10 LA
Artists exhibited at the « Salon des Réalités Nouvelles » in Paris, 5 French artists were in the
exhibition “La Musique Américaine” in February 2020 at LA Artcore.

I am chair of marketing and Public Relations at OCCCA. I am an active member of Los Angeles
Art Association – Gallery 825 and a board member of Women Painters West.
