At the origin of each drawing, of each coloring, there is something that resonates strongly in me !
This something can be anything and everything, as long as it touches me ; An encounter, a scene, an image, a photo, an artist’s work, a story, a project, music … Nature and travel are my biggest source of inspiration. Ethnobotanist by formation, I spent a lot of time in different forests. Through my wanderings and through the place where I live, I have the chance to see incredible landscapes and meet extraordinary encounters. Nature lives, listens, feels, observes, dreams.
I also travel a lot while staying on my couch! Reading is an inexhaustible source of inspiration and discovery. Internet is also a very beautiful forest to explore. I can spend hours loosing myself in the meanders of the web …
When I draw, I have butterflies in my stomach. I escape from the real world to come back to the moment when I imagined or felt this drawing. I do not necessarily have a very firm process. Sometimes the drawing sparkles in me, and I will achieve it in one, go without difficulty. Other times, I’ll feel something, a desire to draw, but nothing will come under my pencils … It’s very frustrating. When the situation ends up unlocking, everything is fine. When it remains blocked my doodles can end up in the trash.
What I love above all is share my discoveries, be able to embark you in my universe and show you how beautiful our planet is. The idea of this first box came as an evidence. I have drawn and written all the year round on what surrounds me, the Fiji Islands.I wanted something of great quality, as I love working on beautiful materials because it affects the final rendering so much. With this box, I want to offer you a moment of escape, a space of creation, to arouse your curiosity, to make you think and especially to amaze you!
I like the idea of coloring, I start something in my own way with my vision of the world and someone will finish it elsewhere, with its own sensitivity. The coloring is the starting point for thousands of art works as different and original as each others. It is, for me, the best way to make this world a collective work of art!
