Announcement   [ Fine Paper, Prints & Original Collage Art with Vintage French Inspiration ]

The Jolie Feuille items are unique and designed around old postcards, newspaper clippings and vintage paper goods, bringing together color and print while evoking far away places and past moments in time. I use real vintage collage media that I source in France or abroad, during my trips back home or exploring other countries. I see treasures in materials that have existed in another era than the one we are currently living in. I like the patina of time on their appearance, the aesthetics of color and print-types juxtaposition I can play with through collage.

About

Vintage Collage & Paper Stories

I am a French-born collage artist and self-taught amateur photographer currently living in Alexandria, Virginia.

In my work, I use real vintage collage media that I source in France or abroad, during my trips back home or exploring other countries. All the items listed in my shop are one of a kind, put together with old postcards, newspapers and other memorabilia that I dig from my grandparents' trunks in South West France or flea markets. I do not print reproductions of my collages meaning that each piece is unique. I see treasures in materials that have existed in another era than the one we are currently living in. I like the patina of time on their appearance, the aesthetics of color and print-types juxtaposition I can play with through collage.

I see beauty in everyday things - an antique map, an old print magazine clipping, a vintage cocktail book page... I love giving these materials a new life and romance while evoking far away places and past moments in time.

I called my shop "Jolie Feuille". Jolie means pretty or aesthetically pleasing. Feuille has several meanings in French - it can be a sheet of paper, the basis of the materials used in my work, but also the leaf of a tree: growing, changing color, renewing itself. There is always potential for a new story to tell in something that could be discarded but carries magic and a second life within.

    A French-born collage artist living in Alexandria, VA, forever in love with beautiful paper, collage art and vintage French ephemera. I find romance in paper items that have been forgotten or discarded, and give them a new life through my work.
