Beatrice Dauge Kaufmann was born in Lausanne, Switzerland to a French father and a German mother. She currently lives and works in Boston. Her profession has allowed her the opportunity to travel all over the world. She has traveled in Europe, North and Central America, Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific.
She has lived in Lausanne, London, Paris, and Florence, where she studied art history, drawing, painting, and sculpture. During her travels, Kaufmann explored the colors around her; she is not afraid of her own emotions and can express them in abstract pictures or landscapes. Often her works depict figurative elements.
She frequently uses square shapes to structure and define the space of her paintings, while also using a wide range of colors. Her love for the sky and the sea inspires her use of blues and greens in her paintings. The fall season in New England has introduced her to the infinite palette of oranges, pinks, and reds. The color effects of her work evoke the feeling of freedom, density, and space. She hopes to give peace in her work and around her.
Currently Beatrice's work is part of numerous private collections in Switzerland, France, Italy, Japan, Cyprus, England, Mexico, Taiwan, and the USA.
