Last year Winter Fun Photoshow got a "Blizzard" class. So I headed out several time, to catch the "perfect" snow storm... and learned that even if you are under tons of snowflakes, they will hide on camera.
Still, I like all thoses try.

-Drawing is in my blood - and that's the best way for me to feel good.

More about me?
I am a 90's child, born in an artistic family.
My father was an artist and art teacher. My mother did silk painting and watercolor as a hobby - she now better like to paint with acrylic and patch.
I've spent my whole childhood in museum and art galleries, following and helping my dad work.
He spent most of his time with me reading european comics.
My mother was following my dad in museum and art galleries too, supporting him... on her free time she did her own art.
She spent a lot of her time taking care of me and I drawed at her side when she was painting.
I did drawing and drawing and drawing like no one could stop me, and my favorite subject already was... HORSES!
It was obvious to everyone that I will do art school.
That's exactly what I did in the end.
I am, technically, a graduated "european comics" person. It means that I've learn drawing, anatomy, scenario, plot writing, story board, semiology, anthropology, philosophy, comics history and art history. Yes all of that.
Why comics? Because I was raised with them and really was thinking it was my way.
In fact, I even did worked in a fanzine, then had projects, plans... hopes and dreams but...
Well, life is life. My father died. I get depressed, struggling with a difficult time (wich was not helped by the side story related to my father's "family", including stalking, blackmail and such things I will not explain here).
I so had to say goodbye to this side of my childhood. I miss my dad, and miss beeing involved in what's left of him work, but I just cannot for my own sake.
Also I had to say goodbye to my ambitions, I was not able to produce drawings anymore.
I struggled for years, still expressing myself with other media such a pictures (well you are on my modelhorsehobby/picture blog so you know it) until I felt like I had to have my chance.
And to have a chance, you have to try, right?
Then you know what happened, covid... my mare who got hurt (lots of time and money involved to save her)... all things that could have stopped me. But no, I really battled against depression this time. Because I want to believe in me, for once in my life.
I've started small, with a more illustrative way of working, as I don't feel like I could do comics right now.
I offer commission and products 100% made with my art (and by me). I am an artist, I sell my work by internet and in live - and most of all, I am happy right now!
My best supports are...
My mom, my cats, my horses...
and YOU! Even if you cannot buy, if you follow me, you are a great help.
So thank you, thank you so much!

As some of you may know, thrifting is my life and so I am a vintage toy collector, it includes Barbie Horses.
If you are an european 90's child like me, you never ever have known about breyers in toys stores because they weren't just commercialised there. So we had... Barbie Horses.
At least, I got Barbie Horses. They were my favorites with Grand Champion Horses, and I've played hours pretending they were real life flesh horses.
I am so, currently in a facebook group "Barbie Horse Collector" and the admin decided to do a Barbie Horse Show! Just like one of our hobby.
I immediately felt that I should enter!
So here's my entries... just for fun!
