Marine painter, the artist who captures nature and light

Laurence Henno has also shared her art through exhibitions of her paintings, highlighting the beauty of nature, textures, shapes and, above all, luminosity. His work has been exhibited at various venues in France, including the Musée de la Marine in Paris and the Galerie François Girodeau, and in Belgium, including the Musée du Cinquantenaire, the Marine Gallery and the Musée du Careveld, among others. Her artistic skills were officially recognised by the Belgian Navy, which honoured her by appointing her an official painter.

The magic of colour on paper

Laurence Henno’s creations, with their tireless quest for light, shades of colour, transparency and the play of shadows, have found their perfect setting in the pages of children’s books. From 1994 to 2006, she delighted readers around the world by illustrating nine albums, translated into several languages and published by the Musées Nationaux, Mijade and Artis-Historia. She has also lent her talent to a dozen children’s games books and illustrations for Milan Presse.
