NOW FOR A LITTLE STORY...

How about me telling you who I am,

what I love most, what I'm passionate about

and the beginnings of Be an artist.

I'm a mum with 3 kids, a native of the west of France and now living in the French Alps.

 

I put my career on hold for about 10 years to share this precious time with them as they were growing up.

 

Together we love inventing and creating stuff from anything we can get our hands on.

I see interior design as a true way of being able to express myself, I'm very sensitive to the harmony of a room and have a feeling for colour.

 

I have in fact worked on many projects for private clients...

 

I love designer furniture and especially Scandinavian style for its clean, pure lines and the simplicity of its shapes.

 

So, as you can imagine, The Conran Shop in London is a sure favourite with me, when I'm visiting, which I love to do !

If I had to choose a new place to settle New Zealand would win hands down.

 

Why ?

How could I forget the year we spent there as a family, rich in discovery and experiences, as well as meeting so many fabulous people ?

 
I'll always cherish the memories of the turquoise blue of Lake Tekapo, the smell of the tree ferns, the never-ending beaches of the North Shore, the Kiwi welcome and the intoxicating and reassuring peace of mind this sublime Southern hemisphere spot has to offer...

For me photography is

about visual art and quirky shots.

 

I draw a lot of inspiration from my photos when making up my albums.

If some of you are still wondering just where I get my inspiration from, turn to your kids and watch how they have this amazing ability to use their imagination, to invent stuff...
 

Let them express themselves, encourage them to draw and paint whether it's a landscape, a milk tooth that's just fallen out or a sandcastle...
 
Anything can become the perfect excuse to get colouring...

 

" Drawing is fun and fun is drawing ", stick with it !

Let me introduce you to Arty !

Arty... Well, he's my lucky sheep, always right by my side in the be an artist adventure.

 

But why a sheep you might ask ? Truth is, my travels in New Zealand didn't leave me indifferent to this ever-present little charmer, almost the symbol of the country !

 

Well, there is another reason... By combining the initials of Be An Artist (baa), it became clear straightaway. Of course ! A sheep in English says baaaa not bêêêê like in French... and a great souvenir of my o'pair days in England singing baa baa black sheep !

 

I'm sure your budding artists are going to adopt him pretty quickly !

 

So... be arty, be an artist :)

Maman de 3 enfants et installée en Savoie, j’ai mis ma vie professionnelle entre parenthèses pendant une dizaine d'années pour partager de précieux moments avec eux.

Ensemble, nous aimons inventer et créer avec tout ce qui nous passe entre les mains.

La décoration intérieure est également pour moi un véritable espace d'expression.

Je suis très sensible aux couleurs, aux matières et à l’harmonie que dégage une pièce ou un environnement.


J’ai d'ailleurs réalisé plusieurs projets pour des particuliers…

J'aime le mobilier design et particulièrement la signature scandinave pour la pureté de ses lignes et la sobriété de ses formes.

The Conran Shop de Londres est un lieu qui me parle.

Et si je devais choisir un nouveau lieu de vie, ce serait sans hésiter la Nouvelle-Zélande.

Pourquoi ?

Comment ne pas oublier cette année de découvertes et de fabuleuses rencontres vécues en famille ?

Je garderai toujours en mémoire le bleu turquoise du lac Tékapo, l’odeur des fougères arborescentes, l’immensité des plages du North Shore, l’accueil des Kiwis, et la quiétude si enivrante et rassurante de ce pays de l’hémisphère sud…
