What collectors say

Edina, Paris France

When I smelled the perfume of orange blossom, I connected with my memories. But more importantly it allowed me to get in touch with my emotions.

Jackie, Suva, Fiji

It was a real chance to remember my horse Swifty. The portrait reminds me of happy memories with him, beyond grief.

Cathy, Washington DC, USA

There are so many simple ways to stimulate your creativity and feed your sensitivity. Let me guide you…

If you were an emotion?

 

Have you ever wondered what kind of sensitivity your personality most aligns with?

Visual art and sensitivity have this in common: It is hard to put words on it. But it’s not because we can’t talk about something that it doesn’t exist.

So I decided to skip the words part, I devised an intuitive test that connects drawing styles with sensitivity profiles.

About

 

Through my art, I encourage sensitive people to connect with their emotions. I use nature, and more specifically horses, to interpret what people feel and translate their sensitivity into drawing or painting.

Hypersensitive and raised with social conventions that discouraged the expression of emotions, I first attempted to adapt to the external world by denying my emotions until “I was out of my feeling”.

At age 25, I was diagnosed with a life-threatening disease that turned my life upside down. I started to paint again. I connected with nature through my work with the World Wildlife Fund.

I was very impressed to meet with communities who live everyday in an hostile nature like in Namibia. It gave me the courage to face my sensitivity.
