How would you describe your work as an artisan?

I am a multi-disciplinary artist who likes to play with colour and texture.

The work I present at L'Empreinte is mainly made of felt. From wearable art to decorative or utilitarian objects, I work with natural fibres and I put my heart into it!

As an artisan, what does it mean to you to be part of the Empreinte coopérative?

In addition to being a beautiful boutique, L'Empreinte is a place filled with human stories and creativity.

L'Empreinte is a showcase for the work of local artisans, both locally and internationally, and I am proud to be a part of it.
