"What defines for me a real artist—it is the inherent necessity of creating constantly. A passion without borders, to want to shout out whom I am, to leave everything to be able to share the stories. Nancy is this person; a real artist in the persevering exploration of the world of forms, colours, and the human nature. Nancy is of great talent. Let us observe and follow her work! You will have very beautiful surprises!"

« Ce qui définit pour moi une artiste véritable—c'est la nécessité innée de créer constamment. Une passion sans borne à vouloir crier qui je suis, de tout laisser pour pouvoir partager ses histoires. Nancy est cette personne; une véritable artiste à l'exploration persévérante du monde des formes, des couleurs et de la nature humaine. Nancy est de grand talent. Observons-la! Vous aurez de très belles surprises! »

"It seems to me that the biggest understatement of the century is that life = stress. Modern technology failed to reduce our stress and give us more time to live, as was predicted. So humans have had to return to their roots, to the basics, to learn to manage their stress. One way is by allowing ourselves a moment to enjoy an activity (no multitasking here!) that requires a different part of ourselves, a hobby for example. A clearing of the mind by means of a mindless doodle, the free flowing expression of paint on a canvas, the liberating expression of movement without confines. Ah! How liberating. A true (panacée) cure-all!" - Nancy Brandsma

"What's on your mind?" How does a woman even begin to answer this question? Women, in general, never stop! In a society that keeps women busy from dawn to sunset, with countless activities and appointments, of which it is necessary to think upon ceaselessly, the feminine brain never has respite! Certain neuropsychologists believe that in a state of rest the feminine brain actually continues to work at 90% of its maximal capacity! As a consequence, it can translate into a very negative impact on our physical and mental health, on our performance at work, our family life and our personal relationships.

« À quoi penses-tu ? » En tant que femme, comment répondre à cette question ? Les femmes, en général, n'arrêtent jamais. Dans une société qui tient les femmes occupées de l'aube au coucher du soleil avec de nombreuses activités et rendez-vous auxquels il faut penser sans cesse, le cerveau féminin n'a jamais de répit ! Certains neuropsychologues croient même qu'en état de repos, le cerveau féminin continue de fonctionner à 90 % de sa capacité maximale ! Ceci aurait pour conséquence un impact négatif sur notre santé physique et mentale, sur notre rendement au travail, notre vie de famille et nos relations de couple.
