About Me


Finding a new home


We are a family of three, Florent,the father, Abigaël, our first baby, and me Alexandra!

He's a film maker, in 16 and 35mm, and also photographer. I'm a visual artist; mostly sculpture and painting, but i do also drawing, woodcarving, installations in the woods and now films too. I do also shamanic healing for people.

We enjoy cooking very much, discovering new combinations with food and wines. (one of Flow's passion)

I started travelling in US and Canada in September 2007 Then i lived for two years between there and France. I spent time in Alaska where i learned woodcarving with Tlingit indians.

After a year in Strasbourg, we are now looking for a new place to be, nearby the sea, probably in French Brittany...

Know yourself! Want the best for you! Meeting new people in unknown places is a way to learn about yourself. Developp and clean your "antennas" to attract luck. If you're listening, and following the flow, you will be in the right place in the right moment. Then, everything happenning is perfect and challenging.

I need to constantly transform things and beeing transformed.
