I made a book!
The art of being here
The color, the light and the sculptural landscape defined so remarkably by majestic Pic Saint Loup and his sister L’Hortus are simply breathtaking. I have attempted to capture these moments in aquarels and embroideries and called the serie, 'The art of being here.' To be present in the moment.
I am amazed by so much of the diverse landscape and atmosphere surrounding Montpellier. The flat and mosquito filled Camargues; The beaches; The medieval city centre, vibrant and bustling with modern life; The many ancient villages, through which one can barely squeeze a car; The many old paths, travelled for centuries; The resilient trees which can withstand the scorching sun in August, and somehow be able to shoot roots in the rocky soil. They teach me a lot about life. I am learning that it is for us, not against us, this life! If those brave trees can do it, we can.
This book is a collection of these moments in the Montpellier area..
