My name is France, but I live in Belgium with my  2 kids, my 2 mares, dog and cat.

Though I started scrapbooking in 2001, I’m a full time mixed media artist since 2010. The mix of soft grunge, color and rusted or vintage embellishments are the main ingredients of my tags, 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 reveal their own creativity.

Being on the design teams of Stampotique, PanPastel BNL and Mixed Media Place and being Brand Ambassador for the Finnabair brand and for ColourArte, I enjoy sharing all things artsy with the people around me. 

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 till this day, a new video is added on a regular basis.

As my artistic occupation was growing (teaching classes, making kits, demoing), I started an art association with two artsy friends (a painter and a sculptor) in February 2012: Arts PH asbl.

In February 2013, I designed my very first stamp collection for Stampotique. My fifth stamp collection hit the shelves in February 2015.
