Intertwined - French Version



“Tout au long de ma vie, j’ai été constamment émerveillé par la beauté et la complexité profonde de la nature qui m’entoure. L’objectif principal de mon travail est la prise de conscience des émotions que la nature me procure, tout en évoquant une relation plus profonde à nous-mêmes et à notre environnement.

Intertwined

Throughout my life I have been in constant awe and wonder of the beauty and profound complexity of nature around me. The main focus of my work is an awareness of the emotions which nature gives me, while evoking a deeper relationship to ourselves and our surroundings. As inhabitants of this planet we do not only draw energy from our surroundings, but also inspiration.

Our modern times has mostly disconnected us from each ... read more here

Postcards from Paris

I have always loved the intricate art of folding origami, especially rabbits. The folding process forces me to be still, focus intensely and be completely in the moment. I find it both soothing and.... Read more here.

Why don't Pigs Fly?

“Why don’t Pigs fly” is just a quirky little series I’m working on, in between two other big projects. Mostly for my own amusement, and I have to say, I truly enjoy it! This is a very personal...Read more here.

Paris is always a good Idea!

So, it happened!!! My very first Art Exhibition ever! And the cherry on top was that it took place in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, my beloved Paris!! The centre of art, architecture and beauty.
Firstly, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I would just like to thank everybody who showed up to see my first exhibition this decade. So many kind words and well wishes. I was totally overwhelmed... read more here.

An Accidental Artist

I still need to pinch myself sometimes when someone asks me what I do, and I say that I am an Artist. A real one. I am amazed on a daily basis when I realize how lucky I am to finally be doing my art full time. After an almost 20 years hiatus from art (after being a graphic designer), I could not deny this urge to express myself through my art anymore, so I left the business world by taking a very risky leap of faith, and here I am. Sitting at a café in Paris, doing my art. Amazing. Read more here.

Unequivocally Yes

A while ago I was interviewed on a radio station, and one of the questions they asked me, was: "What is the role of Art in a time like this, and is it important? (referring to the Covid19 Lockdown.) 

Without hesitation I answered: "Yes, absolutely!" Art is of cardinal importance in a time like this! We are being bombarded with so many negative things, and art is that one little ray of hope that shines through, but also questions you in a way that you are forced to do introspection.

Take me to Church

What an incredible experience to watch master print-maker Collin Cole at work during my recent Intaglio Printmaking Course at the Blue Door Print Studio.
First of all, I have never seen a more beautiful studio in my life! I mean, how cool is it to have a 1904 pink church building with a blue door for a printing studio? It is also the cleanest printing shop I have ever .... Read more here.

Lapine's Paris Adventures

I have always loved the intricate art of folding origami, especially rabbits. The folding process forces me to be still, focus intensely and be completely in the moment. I find it both soothing and therapeutic.
During my stay in Paris I was struck once again by the beauty, complexity and secrets of Paris, much as is reflective of our own lives. I would like to share with you my vision, albeit only rough sketches at the moment,  of what I’m hoping to become two new series of artworks, flowing out of these ideas: Read more here.

Come Fly away with Me

I have always loved the art of sculpting, but wasn’t sure how or if I wanted to seriously pursue it. I was particularly contemplating the idea with more curiosity after finishing my “Why don’t Pigs Fly” series, because I thought they would make the most adorable bronze sculptures! The one thing that held me back is that I didn’t have any knowledge exposure to help me kick-start this journey. While in France earlier this year though, I met an incredible ....Read more here.

Reflections of Paris

I continuously draw energy and inspiration from my surroundings, so with all the rain in Paris over the past few months, the water puddle reflections of Parisian landmarks, trees and people intrigued me to such an extent, that I could not stop trying to see what I could discover in these ever changing puddle reflections......

All in A Day's Work

Some processes are less involved than others, or so I learnt when I visited the very helpful technicians, Rudi and Warren when I tried out a new technique called polymer etching. I  decided to do this exciting new experiment for my “Reflections of Paris” series, and it did not disappoint.... Read more here.

Lockdown Love



The isolation has agreed very well with me, and I found some creative energy to try my hand at a few new things. I haven’t done oil painting in over a year – mainly because it is a medium that I really struggle with, but I am so in love with the richness of colour and the techniques you can use, that I suffer through it, usually to be pleasantly surprised and rewarded by the end result. 

I am doing four paintings at once, just because I find it easier to rotate between them while the others dry, and because this probably is the only time this year I will do oil painting, so I only suffer once through the messiness for a month or so, until..... read more here.

Chagall's Demons

I have always been a huge fan of the Russian-French artist Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Chagall has been described as the greatest Jewish painter of all time, and his surrealist paintings has mesmerized me since the first time I saw it. It was therefore a great honour when I got to see the roof of the Paris Opera House that was painted by ...Read more here

Etretat - Disney World for Adults

Without any hesitation, I would say that the highlight of my stay in France was our adventure-filled road-trip to Étretat. It was during the transport strike, so we decided to rent a car and head up north to Normandy. Oh boy was it fun navigating ourselves in and out of Paris through the biggest and most daunting traffic circle we have..... Read more Here

Beauty and Ugliness

Dear friend, I have left my old life behind for a new adventure! Thank you all for supporting my dream of becoming a full time artist over the past year. 

I would love to share this journey with you, and yes, that means the ups and the downs of discovering new techniques, explore different themes, pushing myself and in the process discovering more of myself and how we connect and translate in the world around us. Read more about it here.

Meet the Maker

Since it is #meetthemakermarch, I thought I would share some things with you that you will not find in a bio or on Google about me. I have always been a dreamer with my head in the clouds. I believed in fairy tales and dragons, and spend hours alone, drawing things, reading though as many books as I could find, and creating whatever.... Read more here
