Who is Devi-Shri?

The Goddess of Love

My name is Devi-Shri.
On 29th December 1978 I inherited my Indian name from my open-minded parents, Isabelle and Luc.

Devi is the Sanskrit word for Goddess and Shri is a Sanskrit title of veneration and love. I have an older sister, Ganesha, named after the best-known and most worshipped deity in Hinduism, the god of intellect and wisdom.

My childhood was a happy one and I thank my loving and caring parents for it. I grew up surrounded by turn-of-the-century dolls, antique teddy bears, old postcards and other curiosities in one of the most beautiful streets in the heart of Ghent above my mother’s eccentric shop, The Fallen Angels.

A lot of my inspiration today is rooted in the memories I have preserved from those happy times. With the years passing, my sister Ganesha has opened her own shop, The Fallen Angels Gallery, right next to my mother’s. She sells vintage advertising signs and posters.

After my high school studies I did some fashion modeling but I quickly realized that I was happiest behind the camera. My passion for photography was yet another great legacy I received from my father, a photographer.

After living in Luxembourg and New York I came back to my roots in Ghent. and decided to go my own way.…and that’s how Be-Angeled got started!
