Of spirit and the forest
Introducing my next collection of glass paintings – De l’esprit et la forêt (Of spirit and the forest).
Friboy’s bestiary of magical beasts
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.
New large glass paintings
These are my latest commissioned glass paintings, 50×40 cm. The first is called Elysian flowers and second is Rosa Rolanda backstage.
Oggy gets a mural
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 :).
The hall of raving rabbids
This is a series of small paintings based on Friboy’s drawings of the raving rabbids sold at Bazar Bizarre and some commissioned by Friboy’s aunt.
The persistence of memory
Learning a language be it our mother tongue or another is neurologically linked to the working memory part of our brain.
Glass art exhibition by Friboy at Le Nouveau Monde
We organized this exhibition with the purpose of funding Friboy’s school ski camp this year. I made about 37 paintings on glass, all based on his drawings. Café de l’Ancienne Gare hosted this exhibition, also to the benefit of the children. We sold almost all of the paintings and managed to cover the costs for his entire class.
Where science meets whimsy
Autumn school break is over which means that for the past two days I have been binging on Harry Potter and Kambly biberli and taking long baths…in the bathtub. While our vacations have been getting easier because FriBoy has grown into a collaborative, easygoing and fun kid to be around, I still find it hard to manage his activities all by myself. We haven’t had grandparents here to help out in a long while, and those couple of hours a day, while they were in charge and I got to sit and do nothing, really mattered.
The Secret Life of Fribourg
Making and offering art for birthdays has become somewhat of a family tradition. I make paintings for everyone in my family either for their birthdays or for another special occasion. For me this is easier than coming up with a gift idea that is likable and useful. It is also very personal.
