The painting is a true message from the fairies to me. This came to conclude a long chapter in my life. Your painting is an important part of the happy ending.

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.

The spirit of our bike journey with John in Provence is in this portrait. It made me reflect on this wonderful moment with John.

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.
