Isabelle has always painted. Her brushes are her weapons against negative energy, sadness and pain. Dreariness has no place in her works. She is determinedly optimistic, sprinkling her canvasses with joy and dreams. Her search for opaqueness, or for sheen-like effects and transparency, encourage her to blend all pictorial techniques: gouache, charcoal, chalk, pastel, oil or watercolour. Her sources of inspiration include impressions from travel, which play an important role. Isabelle sees the colours of places and transfers them to paper.
