Collage by Olivia Puill.
«La vie engendre la vie. L’énergie produit l’énergie. C’est en se dépensant soi-même que l’on devient riche.» “Life begets life. Energy creates energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich”. –Sarah Bernhardt.

When I look at this collage, I feel anchored and strong, I feel powerful yet light. I feel solid and alive... This collage has been there with me since 2013 and I would have a very hard time giving it away. I feel it is a well of inspiration, it is a resource during the days I feel low and full of doubts. It’s a mirror of who I can be, feel and act when I am at full creative capacity! ¶ What surprises me is that back at the very night I did this collage, I felt full of inspiration, and yet I had absolutely no idea of where life would take me. I changed careers 3 or 4 times, I became a mother, I changed country, climate, continent. ¶ The creative energy I have now is the same force. I am the same creative person. I evolved, while seeking for a way of expression that is suitable in the society, to become an illustrator. I have fun polishing my paintings, illustrating songs, but at the same time, I somehow miss the crazy full moon nights where I would sit on the floor with a hundred and more pieces of paper, a quotation, and let the flow create something unexpected. ¶ Now my sleep is too precious and too often disturbed to take a full moon night.
