Welcome to our website!
We're Pascal and Catherine Vannier, a couple of navigators, photographers, and designers who have traveled by yacht, van, and sailboat across Europe and Canada.
We've developed a passion for paper modeling, creating photo-realistic models of streets and buildings.
We then converted them into coloring pages, inviting participation and interpretation from the viewer.
We also use the side walls of buildings as advertising supports, creating interactive Customized Paper Models with a message.
We also offer wall art transfers of our drawings, allowing you to transfer them onto a wall in any desired size and hand-paint them for a unique and authentic feel. Thus, we can create paper models of your own home or shop from photos, and declinate them into cards, coloring pages, or wall art transfers.

So, the tale begins with our very first yacht adventure, sailing from Amsterdam to Paris back in 2002. As we cruised along the rivers and channels of Europe, we were captivated by the breathtaking views that unfolded before us. Unlike the typical vistas seen from cars, this unique perspective allowed us to truly appreciate the stunning architecture of the houses and buildings that lined the waterways.
We were so captivated by the scenery and the chance to appreciate the intricate details of the architecture during our yacht journey that we wanted to find a way to share this experience with others. Recognizing that time on a boat seems to flow differently, we decided to create paper models as a medium to convey the beauty of the houses and buildings we saw. The process of assembling and coloring these models takes time, allowing the viewer to fully immerse themselves in the scenery, just as we did on our voyage. It's our way of offering others a glimpse into the wonder and workmanship involved in navigating through Europe's rivers and channels, and truly appreciating its architectural marvels.
