“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 grew up always needing to create and draw. She tried herself as a child in several disciplines: illustrated calligraphy, modeling in all its forms, origami art, embroidery, porcelain decoration… until her fairy godmother offered her a box of watercolors. Then, fascinated by the paintings of masters, she began to work with oil paint, oil pencils and pastel. Self-taught at first, she also trained with several confirmed artists, illustrators, painters and even sculptors.  


Lucie has a deep attachment to nature, to the imaginary creatures and characters in it, and her work is inspired by fairy and folk tales, folklore and classical literature.
