General Links - more thank just Paris!

Art, Clothing Design & Photography:
Art: Gina Strumpf's paintings represent the passion she feels in her subject matter. She is drawn to patterns of light and shadow but also enjoys figurative work as well as her ever popular Horses! She loves painting En Plein Air and traveling when ever possible to new and exciting locations. She works in her studio in Charlotte, NC and her door is always open. I have had the pleasure to add two of her paintings to my home - take a look at her work on her website:

Art: Olivier Anicet studied at the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Modernes de Paris (ESAM) and at the Centre de Formation d'Arts Appliqués (CFDAA). He now lives and works in Paris. Olivier Anicet is an artist in motion. His never ending interest in reality, of near and far, is constantly enriched with travels, current events or his environment from which he draws his inspiration. I am fortunate to have his work adorning my walls as well.

Clothing Design: A love for vintage inspired, whimsical pieces led Jordan de Ruiter to create her clothing line. She started her eponymous label to cater to fun and feminine women who are inspired to play dress up in their everyday lives.

Photography: If you are an 'arm chair traveller', take a look at photographs taken by Graham Brown who is also a PerfectlyParis client!

Photography: Many of our interior photos have been taken by Lauren Greenwald. She was born in Georgia and has lived up and down the East Coast of the US before living to France for a number of years. With a background in art history and architecture, Lauren's passions lean towards travel, landscapes, architecture, and interiors. She photographs people, but rarely.

Photography: An amateur photographer based in Seattle, Washington, Robert Munoz has many images of Paris, among other subjects, on his website. The banner used at the top of the PerfectlyParis website was created from four photos taken by Robert.

Photography: Here are some wonderful photos taken by a friend I went to high school with, Sandi Wheaton: Sandi does both places and people. She has taken photos of Japan, Spain, Miami, the Grand Cayman and more. Hopefully, she will do some Paris shots soon!

Photography: Sivan is a freelance photo journalist and travel photographer who photographs what she loves - Kids, Food, Travel, Street Art and as a City Dweller, she also photographs the dynamics of the places she is in. Sivan's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally plus she has been involved with emerging Artists groups both in New York and in Tel Aviv. You can see a collection of her wonderful work on her website:

Photography: Sophie Le Berre grew up in France and started photography when she moved to New York in the beginning of the 90's. Photography seemed the best way to catch all that the amazing city had to offer...the light, the architecture and the great cultural mix. Being an autodidact she enrolled at the "New York School of Visual Arts" to study dark room procedure. At the same time she worked in the New York night life which gave her countless opportunities to meet and photograph a multitude of fascinating personalities. Three years later she moved back to Paris and started as a photo fashion editor. She worked alongside famous, international photographers such as Jean Batiste Mondino and Ellen von Unwerth in fashion advertising. Progressively she gave up styling and turned exclusively to photography. Her graceful, graphic and poetic world along with her refined sense of fashion have seduced not only magazines such as "Dealer de Luxe", "Madame Figaro" and "Marie Claire enfants", but also major clients such as Le Coq Sportif, Tara Jarmon and Les Nereides.
