After three years’ training at the institut international de Création Couture, the IICC in Aix en Provence, she spent six years pursuing her career as a fashion designer with Givenchy then with Arrow as a fashion merchandiser in Paris.
Artistic creativity was her driving force, and Johanne Cinier ultimately chose paint as her medium for self-expression. She created spontaneous movements with powerful brushstrokes and bright splashes using transparent pigments in acrylic medium. Her creations translated lively colours into true abstract works of art.
In 2007, Johanne Cinier focussed her artistic work on her father’s business, where she painted her abstract creations on contemporary radiators.
In 2008, she created the IN&OUT PAINTING design concept, which takes art out-of-doors: Abstract works were painted by the artist on stone panels measuring 80×130 cm (the size of an artist’s canvas) for the outside of the house (terrace, garden, patio or balcony, visualised as a “new living space”).
