My name is France, but I live in Belgium with my 2 kids, dog and cat. After discovering scrapbooking in 2001, I became a full time mixed media artist in 2010. Over the years, I have been published in magazines and I have been a member of the design teams of Stampotique Original, PanPastel BNL, Craftstamper magazine and Mixed Media Place. On top of being a Prima Educator, I am also Brand Ambassador for the Finnabair brand and for ColourArte. Since February 2013, I design stamps for Stampotique Original. The mix of soft grunge, color and rusted or vintage embellishments are the main ingredients of my tags, handmade books, altered art and art journaling. To tell my story, I like to play with inky techniques, just like a writer juggling with words. In my classes and tutorials, these techniques allow me to offer a comfort zone to the participants, while guiding them to tell their own story, to make them realize that all you need is creative enthusiasm! I simply enjoy sharing all things artsy with the people around me. Though I travel worldwide to teach mixed media classes and teach online, sharing is such an important part of art to me, that teaching classes doesn't feel like enough. So in November 2011, I started a video series on YouTube called 'Journal on Monday'. We celebrated the 100th episode in August 2014 and to this day, my channel counts over 20k members. I just hope to contaminate as many as possible with my creative enthusiasm!
