Inspired by nature, our shared stories and the mythology of the world, Alana Clohessy creates her imaginings using graphite, paint and thread. Her interpretation of everyday things catapults the viewer to a world of whimsy and desire.Alana was born in Ireland and to where her heart will always go back to. In 2012, she emigrated to Vancouver B.C. where she lived for seven years and worked internationally as an award winning Makeup & SFX Makeup Artist for Film and TV. She also holds a Masters of Science in Materials Science.She now lives and works as a Visual Artist surrounded by bakeries, her plants and the Parisian light on the Left Bank in Paris, France.Alana is currently working on a series in graphite, thread and photography exploring the folklore around the Irish Goddess Brigid as she moved through the ages and the impact society had on her standing in the community and the stories that were told. More About Alana's Work:My work is part of a world that I want to be in. Memories of childhood, forests in Ireland and stories that were told, all feed the rich tapestry of my creations. As I have moved through the world each culture adds a thread to my inspiration. How words are formed in a foreign language to describe a mundane object anew. How people approach the world differently as you cross oceans. To travel is to be exposed to who you are and how little you truly know. Our differences expose us to our innate humanity and that connection strengthens our shared lives. I have always loved people and their multifaceted existence. Stories of who we are and how we understood the world. Mythology and folklore of our ancestors and the magic they once knew. I want to search the world for the magic that has been lost and rekindle a sense of wonder in those who have grown up too much to still believe. https://www.alanaclohessy.com/ https://www.instagram.com/alanaclohessyart/https://www.alanaclohessy.com/newsletter-signupSupport the show

Lady Christina Consolé (Chrissy to her friends) is the creator and founder of Parisian Niche, your corner of the world for all things Parisian and French flaired.A native New Yorker, whose main residence is still on New York City’s famously picturesque Upper East Side, Chrissy has been fortunate enough to have lived, worked, and studied in Paris and traveled extensively through France, Europe, and beyond.​Having worked for over twenty years in several leading French and Italian jewelry and accessory ateliers, as well as a leading American fashion house, Chrissy has developed an eye for detail, beauty, and luxury; where it can be found in the everyday and made accessible. Because Paris is for everyone.  ​One of her main goals since young adulthood was to be fluent (and likewise, to be considered fluent by native speakers) in the French language.  After several years of intense and immersive linguistic studies, Chrissy is truly proud to hold a French B2 diploma from the French Ministry of Education (level set by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) and continues her studies and is on the path to obtain the highest level C1 / C2 diplomas. Chrissy has been an avid and devoted reader since childhood and has parlayed this love into a successful book club, called Parisian Page Turners that is over 50 books deep (and still reading!)  This book club also enjoys the occasional “read aloud,” where Chrissy lends her own voice to the wonderful texts.  The book selections always vary in scope but remain faithful to one beloved setting – Paris and France.    Passionate about all things Parisian and historical, Chrissy has never met a cup (or bowl) of chocolat chaud that she didn’t love.  She can’t wait for her many Parisian “cocoa crawls” as her first stop in Paris is always to indulge in luxurious, chocolatey goodness while overlooking the city.  And after all, isn’t a good chocolat chaud the ultimate gateway into Parisian gastronomic delights?​On the sporty side of French life, Chrissy is a lover of football (soccer) and considers herself a top fan of both PSG and NYCFC.  She can be found at many live matches on both sides of the pond. Forever learning about the city, above all, Chrissy’s passion for all things Parisian has her constantly dreaming, planning, creating vision boards focused on Paris and travels, as well as looking forward to her next adventure “home to Paris.” After all, as famously penned by Lucy Maud Montgomery, in the words of her childhood literary heroine Anne Shirley, “looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them.”https://www.parisianniche.com/Support the show
