“Nicole Sebille is an artist of feeling: after revealing the color and the atomosphere of a landscape, it remains to her to make her work speak its sensitivity- which is such that it slows each viewer the pleasure of finding his/her own perceptions of the colors, space, and diversity…” -T. Demaubus
“Sensitivity and generosity… are found in Nicole Sebille’s warm palette and constructive build which makes it possible to begin to escape into her subjects to an imaginary world or mentality in which a whole environment is made of a reign of peacefulness and love.” -C. Grente
