Isabelle works on themes related to the environment and socio-economical development within the context of our shared humanity. It’s these passions, supported by a keen and critical eye, that define Isabelle as a visual storyteller.
In terms of influences, Norwegian artist Maja Dannegaard has been her primary reference for inspiration, an abstract craftswoman, philosopher, and writer, with whom she has been sharing her life and work for over 15 years.
Isabelle is one of the most extraordinary people I have encountered in my entire life. We met during my early years in Mallorca, and I was blown away by her artistic talent, creativity, and versatility. Since then, our passion for art, travel, and love for Mallorca has created a strong bond between us across time and distance. But let’s get to the questions.
“A reflection in the water can change the perspective of our assumption. Which sometimes can help us, or deceive us. Our senses are guided by illusions as well as by real ones. It’s up to us to make the difference thanks to our intelligence, our reason, our experiences and the systematic questioning of any important situation.”Isabelle Fournet
A. Through art, painting, writing, and other mediums. A walk in the forest or by the sea is an excellent source of disconnection and inspiration.
A. I was born on a Spanish Island to a French father and a Swedish mother. Growing up, I learned more than five languages. As an adult, I lived in several countries and traveled as much as possible. I believe these perspectives add some layers to an artist’s depth.
A. I identify myself best in multicultural places, like Los Angeles, Mallorca, Zurich, any place where there is a great mix of cultures.
A. Nature puts me in awe. Swimming in the sea, hiking in the mountains, exploring caves and other mysterious places nature offers us. And I love reading, watching great movies and Ted Talks.
A. Playing the piano fluently must give a phenomenal sensation of freedom. I would exchange one of the languages I know for the skill of playing one of my favorite instruments.
