Poor Little Rich Girl, 36" x 48", oil on canvas

This painting is a reflection of my subconscious, a transition between three worlds: Africa, Europe, and America. The jungle on the left, the garden in the middle, the buildings at the far end.

I grew up in Africa. My mother was French, my father Belgian. I married a Norwegian and lived in many countries before settling in America.

Who am I?

Comfortable everywhere, yet belonging nowhere.
I have no roots but feel as a universal spirit.

When I paint, I float between my worlds and create my own.
