The young, talented French Lou-Anne won the hearts of the social media audience. Nice, modest, devoted to oil, acrylic and water techniques, she is still looking for more of creative expression. In her case, it is safely to say that art turned out to be therapy.
When I was 17, during the time when nothing predestined me from the art I had my first contact with the art during my one-year hospital stay. Since then, art has taken my heart and has never let go of me.
The confinements that accompanied this difficult episode was easier for me with the presence of art in my life. I was the prisoner of the confinement but I was aware that with the painting I could somehow escape from it.
Since then I have experimented and work with oil, acrylic and watercolour on a daily basis.
The sea became my primary inspiration. It symbolizes strength but also freedom, restlessness and peacefulness. My growing fascination with watching the waves has continued and intensified with the time. The ocean is one of the few things on earth that is not under human control and creates its own rules.
My various trips abroad have reinforced my taste for discovering other cultures. I paint a lot of portraits of African or Colombian women. The vibrant reflections that emanate from the canvases allow me to spiritually cross borders. Painting is the spiritual journey.
