Mariette Teisserenc, born in Grand-Couronne (Seine-Maritime, France), on March 3rd, 1940, is a French visual artist, painter and engraver[1],[2]. She is also known as « Teisse » or « Teisse-renc ».

Trained as a Graphic Designer at Düsseldorf's School of Decorative Arts [3],[4], she gave up a career in advertising in 1978 to devote herself to her artistic practice.

Abstract painter and militant for the cause of women artists in France and abroad[5], her work is characterized by clean shapes, strong lines and the invariable use of the black colour. It expresses tensions between forms and the search for equilibrium[6].
