My name is Christelle Gaist. I am beyond lucky to be living in the luxuriant and wondrous Alps. My artistic practices (especially drawing) enable me to discover and understand the living beings that surround me. When I study a specific species, I'm able to spot it in the wilderness shortly after, where I would have ignored it before. For now, I don’t anchor the creatures that I draw in any context. I want to appreciate them for their forms, colors, and overall beauty.
