I’m an old French lady and the happy gramma of 2 young boys. I began with traditional artworks (mostly watercolours and dry pastels) and discovered the art of photomanipulation in 2008. I followed a lot of tutorials online and worked hard until I got good practice. But I’m not a professional artist, it is just for fun. I don’t accept any commission, due to some bad experiences and I’m lucky to be retired and to stay free to do whatever I want. I love to give some advice and help to younger artists.
I especially like to create some imaginary places where I’d love to be. My style is realistic, bright and colourful. I did some dark pieces in the past, but it is not really my style. In my artwork, I tend to transmit some joy and serenity. With a touch of fantasy, of course. I hope you like my artwork.

annewipf is from the same generation in DA and she has always shown me to be a nice person, always kind and willing. I am not neutral in that, but she is also a great artist, with her own recognizable style that combines a delicious fantasy with her love for nature and detail. Well-deserved Deviousness Award! Congratulations my dear
I cannot imagine a photomanip community on DA without annewipf. For years she has been contributing behind the scenes by posting art features, supporting contest winners, organizing groups and helping fellow artists with her beautiful stock photos. She constantly revises her own artworks, which testifies to her great progress over the years, while her continuous activity shows her passion as an artist. She has a lovely vibrant and varied gallery and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her works. Congratulations, annewipf, for your well-deserved recognition!
As a watcher and true fan of Anne's, I have had the pleasure of browsing through her mystical gallery of dreamscapes. Her artwork is a soothing blend of nature and fantasy that transports an audience deep inside their wildest imaginations. Anne is an active member of DA, who finds the time to be involved and to inspire our community, and is an artist that I, even as a traditional artist admire and look up to. While many of us adults are consumed with the constructs set upon us by society, artists like Anne retain their inner child's curiosities and seek to look at the world through a colourful lense, sparked with creativity, warmth, and joy. I personally congratulate Anne on her Deviousness Award and know she truly deserves it for her artistry, hard work and unparalleled ambition
Anne not only a great artist but a fabulous person, a devoted member of this community. She puts in so much of her time, effort and energy in supporting her fellow artists through journal features, which are as delightful as her artworks. Her gallery is truly a mix of painting with a touch of modernity, it expresses her individuality through her unique style of art, full of imagination, which is as vibrant as a beautiful dream. Congratulations, Anne, on the Deviousness Award. You deserve it, enjoy your limelight!
Anne never ceases to impress me with her unique creativity, enthusiasm, and her dedication to posting her work frequently on DeviantArt. In her gallery ‘Before and after’ she shares the creative process and that is what makes Anne and outstanding member and a well deserved Deviousness award winner. When I look at the otherworldly Amazing Art in her gallery my mind travels far away -- totally inspired!!!The images and colors blend together creating Magic Realism style in ‘The Stories behind the images’. She dreams like a Creative Wizard, that is the strength of her work!
I know Anne from my beginnings and since then I've followed her works. She is a great artist and a very kind person, always supporting the photomanipulation community. Congratulations on your Deviousness Award Anne, I'm happy for you!
