“Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist:
Give me a chance to do my best.” Isak Dinesen, Babette's Feast
Lucie Schrimpf always had the need to give a shape to her emotions through creation, whether with drawing and painting but also with illumination art, sculpting, origami, embroidery, decoration of porcelain... then her fairy godmother gave her a watercolor box. Fascinated by the great masters' artworks, Lucie started later to work with oil painting and pastels. Self-taught at first, she learned from living artists, illustrators, painters, sculptors graduated from Fine Arts.
Her vision has been shaped along with her deep love for the natural world, the creatures and characters that lives in it, and also fairy tales, folklore, classical and fantasy literature. Through her art Lucie explore the complex nature of beings, pushing the viewer to introspection, with kindness and humor.
