Many of you have asked me for advice on framing your prints or canvas prints.


First of all, it is important that you consider what effect you want on your walls. A natural, colored or metallic frame? Depending on the decoration of your wall, you will already have some clues to choose the frame best suited to your interior.


Do you also want it to take up space on your wall or blend in with other wall decor? If you want an A4 size print to take up space on your wall, I recommend you buy an A3 size frame with a pass-through for A4 size, so your frame will take up more space on your wall and will seem less "alone".


One last piece of advice for your framing to go well: remove the paper sheet in the background of your frame and stick with double-sided tape your reproduction on the wooden background of the frame. It will not move or fall off this way ;)



Here are the frames and sizes that I recommend:



For A4 prints:

A4 size: 21,29,7cm (no margins on final prints).

Use an A4 frame or an A3 frame with a pass-through for A4.


- A4 in wood with magnetic clip and transparent background:

As the launch of my new collection approached, all I needed to do was to take photos of the paintings, I was looking for a way to stage them for a poetic rendering and to pay homage to the meaning of each painting.


Melanie, a photographer friend of mine arrived from nowhere for a few weeks, 3 houses away from mine! This synchronicity was a delight and we were able to do a photoshoot that exceeded all my expectations!


Thank you life :)I leave you with Melanie's pictures (find the link to her website at the bottom of this post).













Here is the website of the talented photographer, Mélanie : https://www.melaniegilson.com



Handprints fascinate me, they are one of the only evidence of our passage on earth. When I visited a 5000 year old sacred cave in Australia, it really touched me.

I could put my hand next to it, observe, dialogue, dream with this other hand that a person put in paint thousands of years ago. A physical and very real trace of a person who lived there, in the same place where I was at this very moment.


main, empreinte, cave, rupestre, symbole, 5000ans

An experience that brought me back to the most beautiful and most primitive part of our humanity. We are only passing through on Earth for the time of a blink of an eye on the scale of the universe.

Art has the power to leave a trace of our existence.

Art reminds us in a sensitive way what has been and what is no longer.

Art speaks a universal language. This hand which fascinated me so much in this cave told a story by its unique presence, by its shape, its size, the disposition of its fingers. A simplicity and a purity that tells a lot.



This new collection is finally only a pretext to offer you this opportunity to leave a trace, a footprint, the testimony of your passage on Earth. Yours and your loved ones. To symbolize also this strong link which unites you and gathers you, all as imperfect as we are.

The events we have gone through this year have made us realize how vulnerable life is. How much we can miss the people who are so important and familiar to us when we are deprived of seeing them, touching them, kissing them.

As a tribute to the people who give us this inner strength, this strength that allows us to move forward each day on our path, this collection was thought so that you can anchor & ink forever a trace of those you love.

I must admit that I have tears in my eyes as I write this. I think about how much I wish I could have kept this physical imprint of my grandparents. Not a day goes by that I don't think about them and I dedicate this collection to them with all my love.


I hope you will enjoy this new project and that it will touch you as much as it has touched me. I invite you to take a look at my guide to see which painting will suit you best, and why not share with me the one that resonates with you in the comments?
