"Art is an experience that transcends all cultural makes us feel!"

KA: Who or what first inspired you to start painting?

Fifi: I was first inspired to paint when I realized I could not afford a REAL Henri Matisse painting and began copying them. My first reproduction was A View out of Paris apartment window!

KA: How do stay motivated to create new art consistently?

Fifi: Seeing things that surround my daily life online is what motivates moi to paint… there are so many FABuLOUS photos online… visiting blogs, socializing via online media and photos scream to moi PAINT ME!!! Anddddd I am always snapping photos via my iphone of things in the REAL world and magazines aussi!

KA: What artists do you emulate or admire a great deal?

Fifi: My all time favorite artist is Henri Matisse… j’adore his BRIGHT colours and exciting pattern compositions!

KA: Tell me about when you first started your art/blog site……

Fifi: I started blogging in April of 2008. My maman told me about blogging… she read about in the Wall Street Journal and then I read about “paintings a day” in Domino magazine. I visited the Painting a Day website and read that you must have a blog for at least 4 months to be considered… sooooo I began blogging… then I started an Etsy account and here I am!

KA: What are your next projects or shows coming up….?

Fifi: Next project… Welllll I’m VERY EXCITED about this coming year as I will be getting back to my REAL passion… painting on canvas!!! Anddd I’m hoping to do more art trunk shows and some gallery showings… and of course I’m hoping to make a trip back to PARIS!!!
