Lives in the south of France. / Self-taught. / I hope to be able to surprise you – and surprise me !

Lives in the South of France. So, sorry for my amateur translation.
In charge of education of small children.
Self-taught. Never took any Art classes.
Nevertheless, as far as she is concerned, she finds it difficult to take herself seriously as an artist.
It would make her happy if you like her work and/or find it well done.
Has tried Chinese painting, clay, acrylic painting, and now : engraving.
Some photography (but lost many pictures while changing computer ☹).
Also works by proxy : workshops with small children.
Inspired by nature (gardens, insects,…), photography from old newspapers and postcards, and of course her fantasy.
Likes to re-work on existing pieces (mixture of old and contemporary).
Spends a lot of time on the Web looking at sites like RedBubble to find boosting
(thank you very much for existing !)
Other hobbies : litterature, gardening, travelling, listening to jazz, movies … and daydreaming !
Artists who make me feel good, in no specific order :
Alechinsky and Murakami, Dürer and Waterhouse, Della Francesca and Hiroshige, E. Pignon E. and Anne Messager, Hokusaï and Alexander MC Queen, G. Moreau and Jiang Hong Chen, Joana Vasconcelo and John Wesley, Yang Jiechang and A. Böcklin, Mucha and…

Wish I had several lives to only do that : watch the world and examine the best of it.

I hope to be able to surprise you – and maybe you will surprise me !
You are the ones who interpret my work, you are the viewers !
