Fabienne Verdier

French artist Fabienne Verdier paints on sheets of paper/canvases spread out on the floor. Lucky Verdier even has her own mezzanine in her studio, which helps her with perspective due to the larger-scale work that she creates.

Her paintings are vertical and play with stroke, as well as the weight of her body. The paintbrush is at times hanging by a 10 meter rope and held in place by a pair of bicycle handlebars.

She is greatly inspired by Chinese painting (as you can probably tell by her ink flow and brush strokes).

I've always found one's thought process to be so interesting to look at and I think it's really cool that she's included pages of her visual journal to her website (see 3 last pictures above). The book includes her daily thoughts, research, inspirations and disappointments. 
I wish I could understand her chicken scratch.

For more info, you can check out her website here.
