They supported me a lot to go dancing and theater courses. But as I decided to go to an Art College it was hard for them because I think they were scared that art will not help to find a job and get money for the stability.

I was so long scared to look inside of me and to show and express what is there... Oceane Art says and she says nice!

What is Fear?

I did not want to go to Wikipedia and copy a few sentences to complete this introduction. So let me state here what my personal experience of fear is.

For me, fear means loss and failure but it is strange that a large part of my life has been experiencing this painful feeling ... Also, fear has been a kind of disruption for me in my life, but it is amazing that my life has often been full of the destruction of order that I have worked for making that so long.

I used  Strange and Amazing words to show that I have never been accustomed to these.

I say honestly, maybe part of my horror is due to my laziness, which I often like to rest more, but it is strange that I am not a sleepy person, but maybe my soul needs rest, and although the soul, because of its nature, which is energy, is not static and cannot rest completely.

So what is the logic of my fear?

I really do not know, so I often forget it, and sometimes I encounter it, but I have never described it as I do now.

Anyway, dear Oceane Art has talked about a subject that motivated me to delve into myself for a few moments and write these sentences.

I wish success and happiness to this artist, interesting and thoughtful lady, Oceane Art!


Thank you!




1- Please present yourself: Name, education, Civil status and...

.My name is Angélique Préau and my soul/artistic name is OCEANE. I was born in France and I live in Germany (Berlin) since 6 years now. I studied at a College of Fine Arts and a Theater College in France (Angers). I am a photographer, actress and singer.


2-What is your artistic speciality?

. I have different ways to express myself. Photography was one of the first I developed. I really love it. The acting was always a big emotional playground for me, that let me feel free and happy and singing was always my dream but I really start to open it freely for 2 years now.


3- When and how did you become interested in this field?

.Everything very early and intuitively. I just knew I had too.


4- Who was your motivator?

. I need to express the huge and deep feelings and emotions that were living in me.


5- What was your parent’s reaction?

.Uhm… They supported me a lot to go dancing and theater courses. But as I decided to go to an Art College it was hard for them because I think they were scared that art will not help to find a job and get money for the stability.


6- When did you become such a professional Shaman?

.Haha, what is a professional Shaman? I don´t think I am a Shaman… or not yet. I just feel very connected with the shamanic cultures and I am learning to live my life following the praxis and philosophy of the shamanic cultures because it is natural to me.


7- Are you thankful and happy because of your activities as an artist and Shaman?

.I feel so blessed and happy to create, to dare to express freely myself with my music and my voice. OCEANE is a very deep and heart artistic way for me. Working as a shaman by visiting my own inner worlds, my shadows, asking for visions… and then translate all of this wonderful personal journey on my own way. And for me it has to be through my voice. I feel I finally found "my way".


8-Who is The Shaman?

Uhm… The Shaman is the master of traveling between the worlds. From the material world to the invisible worlds. Is he a creative person, a magician who can create in the material world just by connecting to other invisible worlds? He has a long and hard way of inner journey to be able to transform his dark parts to light and healing power. The Shaman is the one who guide and heal just because he already made this way alone before.


9- What is connecting between Shamanism and art also Shamanism and Culture?

. For me, the Shaman is an artist. He is able to create without any masks because he left the “social good looking character”. He is deeply connected to his soul. This is what I call an artist. Someone who takes his inspiration from deep inside and who dare showing it to the world how it comes.


10- How do you see the view about art, Shamanism, culture?

. For me personally, art and creation are a natural way of being. For the world, I think that art is very important in general and give a lot to humans and society ! Shamanism is a very very old practice and way of living which means the roots, the original way for humans to connect with the world and the nature. Nowadays, a lot of people are speaking and experimenting with something about shamanism. It is coming back because we need to connect back to the nature, to our roots, to connect to the world in a very different way that we did since hundreds of years. Shamanism is an open and free way which simply help you to find back who you are. So, your nature. And when you connect back to your nature, you connect back to the nature, to the world outside. The culture is today influenced from all of this. The world is changing deeply, we are changing deeply as humans. So, to me shamanism is an wonderful and powerful tool to create art and culture for this new world which is already born.


11- Can you become one part of the cultural movement for motivation in youth or new generations in your country and so on?

. I hope too! I wish to share hope, to inspire people who are scared to show really who there are, to help people to discover their huge and wonderful inner world. I have no worry for the future of our world and I try to stay deep calm in this crazy world change and crisis. So, I guess the world needs a lot of calm people to help those who feel scared and stressed.


12- How can you help our world become a better place to live?

. I understood, that I only have to do what gives me JOY and this is the way I can help the world. Is it not so cool ??? By being who I really am, and by doing what I deeply love, then I can inspire others to do, not the same as me, but to do as well what they love. And it is simply what the world needs, to be a better place. And of course, I wish to help people who need help in this way.


13- Have you more words to say or suggest for our readers?

. Yes. Everything you are looking for is inside. All the answers, you know them. Ok, I read this sentence a lot before, I was like, yes it´s beautiful but I don´t understand. But today I experience it and this is why I want to say it. I was so long scared to look inside of me and to show and express what is there. But the day I was ready to go to see inside changed my life.
