I am a French Canadian with European background. I was trained as an archeologist, and have also trained professionally in visual arts, classical dance and as an amateur photographer.
At 45 years old, following a path towards more voluntary simplicity and mindfulness, I have decided to return to the creative path (writing, photography, drawing, Chiyogami collage and dance), while working part time and travelling, when possible, as a « digital nomad » (blogging and writing) for an ethically oriented Startup. I live on the road sharing a simple life between Montreal and Europe where I follow the call of the lens and of my soul...
The practice of mindfulness is at the base of my personal and creative life.
My original name is Abigaëlle Richard, but I sometimes under the name of Maëlle Hartmann.
