Back in March during my stay in my home island La Réunion, I jumped at the opportunity to capture my sister Sandrine, in her studio where she paints and frames.

Some of you may remember this post when I introduced you to her work. This time, I invite you to join me and sneak a peek at her creative space and the making of her work.

A playful use of colours and the presence of little figures are recurrent elements in Sandrine's work. Watercolour is her favorite medium in which she likes to express herself. And when questioned about her watercolours, she likes to quote Chardin: Je me sers des couleurs mais je peins avec mes sentiments -One makes use of colors, but one paints with emotions.

Her artwork is wonderful! I love the whimsical and playful style of it. My Mother in Law just gave me one of her paintings for my birthday. I was so thrilled. These make the most special of gifts when you know the artist or read about their story. What a talented sister. Thyme (Sarah)
