Thank you

Heart shaped handmade box, thank you Emma G. for sending me this photo!

I always feel blessed when my dear customers send me photos from their home, with my illustrations hanging on the walls or standing on shelves or furniture. It really shows me how people are living with my art around them, how it surrounds them with special feelings and colors.

Gitanjili P. sent me this photo today, amazing display. Thank you sweetie!

I know I’m less active here than before, but be sure I’m still here, creating, illustrating, painting… and that your support means a lot to me, more than ever ! This blog post is dedicated to all my dear fans and customers from all these years. Those who follow my art journey, my artist life and connecting what I do with their own personal life. To all of you, THANK YOU ❤

I sometimes feel I’m on the Internet creative sphere for too long now. I see a whole new energy coming from new artists and artisans, and I wonder if I still have my place in this. Maybe it’s seeing too many things every day on all these social medias, from all these accounts on Instagram, Facebook and such, from super talented people. Maybe it’s just coming from me, inside me, asking myself a lot of questions. Maybe I’m just not enough good, or maybe I still am. Most probably, it’s just my artist way of life giving me another “Am I still an artist?” feeling. But I recently found out that if I still have this creative energy in me, then I still have my seat in this creative world too. I know I have still some legitimacy to be on Internet and to show my Art. I know I’ll always create and illustrate.. so let’s continue to share what I do with the connected world :)

Fans can be so creative, it amazes me! Thank you Laura!

If you, too, have photos you’d like to share with me, you can send them to me by email or even in a Facebook PM. I’d love to see that!

    This post is months old but I just wanted to comment that your blog and your work has always been a bright spot for me, a place I come for inspiration, especially now during this pandemic and all its uncertainties and anxieties. I’m a fellow artist but my reach isn’t as great as yours — yet! — so I look to your home here as an aspirational spot for me, an example of where I want to go. You give me courage! I know how it feels to question yourself (I question myself when I look at YOUR work!) but we’re each unique, each with our own artistic voice, each with our own audience, with some overlap in a lot of cases, I’m sure. All that to say, keep doing you–whoever that is today, tomorrow, or next year. I’ll always be checking in as long as you’re here. Thanks for the beauty you bring to a world that desperately needs it.
