Frifemme – My story
Of spirit and the forest
Introducing my next collection of glass paintings – De l’esprit et la forêt (Of spirit and the forest).
The deer in the forest
This illustration is inspired by the forest of Grand Belmont, one of my favorite forests in the canton of Fribourg. I saw a deer in one of my evening walks in this forest and felt like I needed to paint it. The whole scenery seemed surreal and magical, the deer popping out of nowhere, watching us for a while before taking of in the bushes.
The Self care series
The self care series of illustrations is inspired by my own wellness practices. They feature Bear – The bearer of wisdom, a bear who lives in Bern by the Aare river, he is a rescued bear, now living in captivity. Life forced him to learn how to manage stress, practice self-care and let go of the things he cannot control.
Les potz was born out of necessity because I needed flower pots for my plants and since the stores were closed I had to improvise. So I repurposed the tin cans we had stocked for the quarantine. They are hand painted and coated with water proof varnish.
The humanz is a collection of old bowling pins, I have restored and painted by hand. They are an ecclectic bunch – a skipper, an artist (Yayoi Kusama), a mystic, an Indian woman, the Virgin Mary – and reflect my curiosity and interest in cultural diversity and spirituality.
