“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 is born and live in France. She has always created and drawn. Through drawing, illuminated illustrations, watercolor and later oil painting she brings the characters that populate her imagination to life. Self-taught artist and influenced by the works of Renaissance painters and the Flemish primitives, Lucie later trained with the help of several contemporary artists and today works with oil painting most often on wood and draws his illustrations with oil and wax based colored pencils.
She has kept an attachment to the imaginary characters of her childhood, to nature and to animals. Her work, often tinted with nostalgia, is mainly inspired by the fantastic worlds of fairy tales, by the folklore, popular culture and also classical literature.
