Patrick Cornée, born in 1962 in Toulouse, France, is a painter currently living and working in Mougins.
From the navy to painting
Encouraged by his military father, Cornée enlisted in the French Navy at the age of 16. After six years of sailing around the world, he began to feel a longing to paint once again and it became obvious to him that that was the path he was destined to take. And so, he attended art school in Toulon and took classes in a painter’s workshop. The artist began developing his own style and working with national and international galleries.
