JOHFRA AND ELLEN
JOHFRA AND ELLEN IN THE PERIGORD NOIR

      But, through Galerie la Licorne, her involvement with the arts community in Dordogne increased. She joined the Société des Beaux Arts de Dordogne, exhibited at their annual Salon and, in 1985, walked away with first prize (defeating even Johfra...). Galerie la Licorne continued to mount exhibitions and expanded into publishing cards and posters under the imprint Le Chants des Toiles (now continuing as Sidh and Banshees).
      In 1985, her contribution to the arts in France was recognized when she was awarded with a disinction of le Société Arts-Sciences-Lettres.



 
 
 


PARIS - SPRING 2003

THE ASTRAL MUSEUM


      Her paintings continued to express an equal fascination with Nature and Spirituality. During this time, Lórien travelled through Egypt and India, and motifs from these cultures also appeared in her works. Many of her paintings were reproduced as book covers or were printed in magazines. Along with Johfra and Carjan, she also continued to produce fairy paintings, and these were gathered together in the book Elves, Fairies and Gnomes.
      Johfra’s fascination with Lórien is reflected in a series of portraits which he made of her over the years. The largest, The Lady and the Unicorn (1984), captures her as she appeared when still a young woman. She is surrounded by lotus flowers and water lilies, while Buddhist ruins appear in the background. The style of imagery is derived from her works, and Johfra seems to be rendering homage to Lórien both as wife and as painter.
