I have been following painting lessons with a great torontonian artist, Dan Anaka (; his art and his technique are amazing and I'm so amazing of how quickly I learn with him. Check out his stuff, and you can follow his progress on Fb:!/da…

I will be posting some of newer creations soon, but my camera is currently not functioning (as well as my tablet, which explains the lack of pieces that I've been working on in the past year).

Oh well, I have to take the time to draw and paint, right? at some point, anyway... The thing is, I would never have thought so, but doing a Ph.D take ALL my time, literally! And when I start painting/drawing, I tend to not see the time passing... But in any case, I feel like I "still" improved, although I haven't been able to do anything in the past two years. I have a few projects (4) on the go, and should be soon the time to share them with you all.

But for now, I did some work on my website: --> more users friendly now :P

I recently began to do jewelry again and would love to invite you to my online store:
I'm mostly doing earrings, as I love earrings and wear them all the time, so a new passion emerged in me with them :)
Make sure to check them out, if you're into that stuff; I can also make special orders, if you're looking for something unique!

Well well... I have so little time to draw these days... with the phd and the strike and well, the amount of work that never diminishes! So, basically, I will focus on tattoo designs: quickly, and I feel like I still CAN draw :)

Do let me know if you are interested in designs for your own purposes. Prices will depends on the size and complexity. Ask me about it, if you're interested :)

Ok, I know what you are going to say: 2009? Of course, it's been like almost 2 months already, it's time you get it! I should... I really should. To tell you the truth, I meant be young still (argh... 26!) but I can say that 2008 was the worst year of all my life. Of course, nothing much happened. I mean, it was the worst of me; no one is going to feel the same way, and most definitely, many of you might think it wasn't that bad, actually.

To begin, my 16-years-old cat, Gizmo, died in march... 2 weeks after our common birthday (we were both born on March 19th, with a 10 years difference). She died and it really has been more difficult than I had imagine. My cat, obviously, was really sick and everything, but I really felt like I could have done something to make her feel better, or at least, not to see her deperish like she did.

Two weeks prior to that, I had confronted my boyfriend with terrible news... Something I did, something that wasn't wise and I feared so much that I was going to lose him. We didn't break up; he understood and it almost strengthen our relationship, in a weird way.

2 months later, I met someone. A guy that I have heard about. I totally fell in love for him. Immensely. I, of course, tried to 'avoid' it, but it was hard. Love at first sight almost; and I could hardly control myself. It's easier though when love isn't reciprocal. Or, more appropriately, it is easier when love is reciprocal. Does this make any sense? Might not... but it's coming.

So, I fell in love with him... I felt like I needed to talk with my boyfriend... My boyfriend with whom I've been for 7 years. We broke up. And, surprisingly, the other guy had a crush on me. And I felt like, after all, maybe it was meant to be. So wrong as I was...

Obviously. He played with me. Not obviously, probably not on purpose but more through something like insecurity, doubt, suspicious and, most of all, self-absorbtion. He cruely hurted me. And I was foolish enough to think that feeling such a strong love couldn't be not reciprocal.

And now... I don't know; 2009. A new year. Everything seems better. But is it, really? I feel sometimes, that all my plans, of my goals, of my dreams are slipping away. I walk the streets and clearly something is missing. It's me, obviously. Incapable of being happy, maybe? Thorned between art, literature, phd...

Always that rambling to let it flow I guess. So much about drawing and art :P

It has been a long time, hasn't it? I moved to Toronto at the end of august, started a PhD in september, new place, new city, new friends, new community... a lot has been happening! I wasn't convinced with my 'decision' every day, I must say... It has been hard; and it still is sometimes... Especially due to the fact that my university is shut down due to a strike. Yep! On strike, as a Teaching Assistant and no more class... That's basically how I manage to draw sometimes in the past days! And I have so many ideas; it's crazy! But so many readings to do too, and writing articles, paper, novels... crazy, crazy!

Around and around

As the time passes... nothing change; still trying to work, but not hard enough, I guess.

I've been admitted to the Ph.D and i'm quite excited (and anxious) to start in september. Wow, that feels weird to be away from school during a year!!

Again, not much time to draw this day; I've been surfing around Etsy as well as my newly built myspace's page.

That's about it, I guess; nothing new; still quite cold outside; no wisdom teeth left but infection has taken their place, just to spice things up a bit in my mouth!!! (:ahoy:). No alcohol for another week: damn it!

I know my art isn't as nice as it used to be...
Traditional medium is really harder I guess, but I really want to improve since I'm not that fond of drawing all the time with my computer (since I'm working on my computer and writing on it too! My eyes are crying and begging me to stop he he).

Anyway... I promise you guys I'll submit so really really nice stuff soon!!

Who is Gizmo, you ask? well, my 16-years-old cat I had to put to sleep a few days ago. I'm still trying to move on, but grieving is a process I guess... ;( She was really sick, and old, and well, thiny thiny thiny... So, bye bye Gizmo...

Also, as you can see, I'm still looking for my style ?? I'm trying lots of differents stuff these days, always with portraits though, and women. But I'm trying the nu pastel - that I love - as well as painting. I still find it hard sometimes and i'm always messing around with traditional medium! Anyway.

I also deleted a few pieces from my gallery. I will delete more in the next days. I'm trying to keep only a glimpse of my works here, and to give you guys the desire to navigate through my website (

Hi everyone!!!

I finally did it!!
My website is OFFICIALLY

Be sure to check it out and
send me a note or something
to give me some feedback.

Of course, if everyone goes at the same time,
I'm not sure it will keep up!!

But still :)

I haven't add anything in sketches for now,
but in this section my lineart and sketches,
from my human anatomy class, will end up there.

Here the link :

As much as possible, I will also try to keep all my artwork on my website, and upload the recent pieces here and eventually delete some (the least popular, I guess, but also most of my lineart. So, if you wish to color my lineart - and you don't currently have one of them - they will eventually be on my website).


EDIT: By the way, if you encountered errors on my page, please tell me what happened, so I can fix the problem!! Thank you very much!!

EDIT II: Hey you all!
Sorry for the lack of updates,
I'm building my new website,
which will be awesome, btw,
and I really have no time
to draw (and I'm quite sad
about that).
I'm taking this human anatomy
class, so this is where my 'drawing time'
is spent. I guess that i'll post my best pieces
