Everyday thoughts: January Journal

Journal of the Everyday – January 01st to January 31st, collecting life.

January stands still, January is Blue, January lies dormant…

A time where light is in the small everyday gestures, mostly the ones that keep us warm.

“I do not climb the sides of barren mountains or cruise oceans alone under full sails,

I do not dive into ice cold winter waters,

I cook my eggs soft, I wipe away the tears of my children and compose my days with painted colours.”

I see a lonely bird waiting for its kind,

I hear a plane going to the far east,

I chase the winter light

and smell the scent of April showers around the corner.

It’s really good enough for me…

Bonjour Bonjour…

Intonations of Life: Notes If I were… I would be…, Bed sheets in the sun, Being “une maman”, Wearing tomatoes , Atelier details.

I have thought a long long loooong time on how I would write this first post?

How should I present myself and give you right away a little piece of my intimacy, something extra that would luckily trigger your curiosity.

Several Journeys around the sun behind me, weathered by storms, but unconditionally looking at life with the eyes of a child. You will learn most likely to know me along these posts but  for now…

IF I WERE… I WOULD BE…

A sound – An heartbeat

A season – Eternal summer

An element – Water

A thing – A white shirt

A landscape – A lost beach

A fruit – A tomato

A colour – A painter palette

A book – The Ice People by Barjavel

A Plant – An old tree

A feeling – Desire

An animal – Cicadas in the garden of my childhood house

Food – Parmesan

A way of Life – Surfer

A place – Puerto Escondido in 1997

A Song – Le Sud by Nino Ferrer

A texture – Rice paper

A future adventure – Japan

A source of inspiration – The imperfect

A word – Life

But I am above All,  A Mother

Bonjour Bonjour…

Journals.

Stealing Life on film and drawing It, is my language. While others write their diaries, I draw my journal instead since 1997.

I am a French-born creative adventurer based in Oslo where I ended up because of love. While working in fashion for over 20 years, first in Paris, in my early years at Jalouse and training in Christian Lacroix atelier, then designing for a Norwegian company, I have dedicated my sensitivity to the visual  language; drawing, annoting, photographing, collaging, mixing, drawing, manipulating…. All means to achieve a sense of elegance.

Devoted to Paper and the hand touched, I collect the multiple intonations of Life. You will find here a piece of my journal echoing to my extraOrdinary, you will travel along into uncharted territories following the paths of creativity and hopefully stay close to me 🙂

TWWP and I, have inspired each other for some years now and I am SO grateful to have this place in their community! 

MERCI
