Marie-Paule is a highly knowledgeable, relatable and patient teacher. She shares her experience and tips in a warm , relaxed, friendly way. I noticed that she manages to adapt her teaching to the learning style and the personality of each person who attended. I highly recommend her workshops.

Amazing work by Marie Paule she is so talented and loves what she does. She is so generous and patient with her time to produce the best possible artwork with finesse and subtle colour patterns to make her work so impressive. Very patient teacher i learned how to do my first mosaic and i am so happy! Marie gave me all the tools and tips to make my work more contrated and alive. She made a Alice in wonderland rabbit for me and one of the best and thoughtful gift i ever had.  Simply magnificent. Thank you for the awesomeness MariePaule amaaazziinngg 🤩
