Infused with spirituality, the untamed Romantic festoons the trees with lace.
 
Delicate and tender, she distils essence of simplicity and feeds on bread and wild berries.

browns, antique beiges, rustic

A sexy flamenco dancer twirling to Mediterranean folk tunes.

Bonjour tristesse in the shade
of a fig tree.

Primitive Energy
 
Attracted to primitive art, she piles up amber necklaces and time-worn purple wood bracelets, flips through the Revue Blanche looking for inspiration in the negro art of the twenties, mixes Art Deco codes and 70s graphics, visits the First Arts section in the Louvre to decipher the modernity of tribal art, discovers the work of young African designers.
