dans mon crâne

“Dans mon crâne” means “in my skull”.


I chose that username a long time ago because what I share here is my way of seeing the world and my place in it. A visit in my skull is a fantastic ride deep into one’s emotions and identity, bringing things out into the light and dusting out dark corners. My art is all about being open and unafraid to go deep.

I am passionate about the healing power of art journaling and photography, about travel and expanding your horizons, about not wasting time on fear and raising our voices loud, about documenting the little things as well as supporting the big things. I am on a journey in this life and art helps me find perspective.

I invite you to join me on this path. Let’s walk it together and see where it leads.
