The artist said she is excited to have a show at Upper West. She is a fan of the restaurant. She will be exhibiting a mix of paintings created in 2017 and 2018.

Originally from France, Periano has been creating art since 1992. She has been living in the U.S. since the1980’s, and said she finds inspiration all around her. “I’m a nature lover,” said Periano. “I pick up organic things during my walks. When I get flowers I save them for art projects. I don’t want to discard anything that was once alive. I love to reconstruct nature scenes with actual organic pieces. I also love a good mystery. Forest are mysterious to me and magical as well.”
