Introducing my next collection of glass paintings – De l’esprit et la forêt (Of spirit and 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 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.
This is the latest series of paintings I made based on Friboy’s drawings. They are all animals, which are my favourites of all his drawings. I love his minimalist lines and graphic design, they remind me of Keith Haring’s style and they allow me to work with details without overdoing it.
These are my latest commissioned glass paintings, 50×40 cm. The first is called Elysian flowers and second is Rosa Rolanda backstage.
My sister asked me if I could paint a mural on her terrace. I had never done it before which equally freaked and thrilled me. I love street art, graffiti and anything massive. And like with any new project that I undertake, I bought several books on large scale street art so I could document myself on the techniques before I get started. It didn’t go as planned, Friboy got in the way :).
