About

From brushes to needles ...

From the very beginning of my adventure on this earth I've liked to mix colors and textures.
It became obvious to me that I would study art, so after suffering cheerfully through studies in Latin and Greek, that's what I did.

After a few years as the head of a graphic design studio in a great Belgian publishing company, I realised that spending my days in front of a virtual pallet did not fulfill my need for manual work. An internship at the Beaux-Arts school opened the doors of decorative painting for me.
So I went back to school, to the prestigious Van der Kelel-Logelain institute in Brussels.
I spent several exhilarating months acquiring ancestral techniques amidst other enthusiasts.

Since then I have not left my beloved wooden easel. I first started on home decoration projects, and quickly moved on to work on restauration projects of magnificent French Historic Monuments. My fellow restorers have generously shared with me their expertise, that I eagerly completed with a lot of reading and numerous internships.

A publisher persuaded me that my patiently collected recipes of the old masters notes on paint could compose an interesting manual. My husband Frédéric, a photographer, jumped on board as well. From this collaboration was born in 2010 "Peintures, recettes maison", a step-by-step illustrated guide of fifty historical paint recipes with a contemparary twist, made with unexpected household staples such as cottage cheese or cornstarch.

The project to create a unique cover for one of Frédéric's books had me dust off my grandmother's fantastic vintage Bernina sewing machine. I enthusiastically engaged into this project that combined two of my passions, painting and sewing, mostly from antique textiles such as vintage sheets, tablecloths, lace etc...

I took my brushes and needles, and a first organza flower was born for the project "Fragments of Fragonard" initiated by my friend, La Fille du Consul. I realised flowers and I were a match made in heaven, so here's my flower garden, for your eyes only, where new flowers bloom constantly for my pleasure and, I hope, soon to be yours!
