"CRÉER, C'EST FAIRE UN PAS VERS L'HUMANITÉ "
Je suis née a Paris, d'origine polonaise.
Formation au modèle vivant, dans plusieurs ateliers : Château de Plessis-Trevise, Maison des artistes à Nogent ,Alfortville, entre autres.,
Depuis 2001, Je vis et travaille dans mon Atelier "LA ROSE DES VENTS " à Saint- Laurent Des Arbres, magnifique village médiéval aux milieu des vignes gardoises.
Mes matières préférées : l'argile, la pierre, le bronze
(Tous mes bronzes, aux patines très brillantes, sont numérotés et signés avec certificat d'origine)
Aimant la liberté, Je stylise mes sculptures en recherchant une harmonie entre les courbes et les angles tout en gardant le mystère de la féminité.
Mon style est reconnu et appelé LE MANDEL'ART
J'expose particulièrement en France et en Belgique : Assemblée Nationale, salons internationaux, et dans plusieurs galeries .
J'ai de nombreux collectionneurs en France, Belgique, Angleterre, U.S.A, Hongrie, Allemagne, Sing... Read More
' I was born in Paris from Polish parents. My father cabinetmaker of art gave me the direction of beautiful and the taste for the noble matters. I would have liked to make the Art schools but the circumstances of the life decided some differently. It is only into 1997 that I discover really the sculpture at the time of an exposure and it was a revelation. I was introduced at once at the House of the Artists with Nogent on marl and with the Castle of the Turrets in Plessis-Trévise; I attended, thereafter, several Parisian workshops. My life then takes a new dimension with a return on myself: - to return at the origins of the World, to touch and model the ground become for me a passion: "LIKE a SECOND TAKE-OFF" After having carved according to alive models, I sought then, a freer expression allowing me to let run my imagination by stylizing the bodies, while remaining in the figurative one but by affirming my style. I took part in many expostions, both in Paris and in his area. Since 2001, I live Gard where I found a true blooming of my passion in a pretty medieval village, with the borders of Provence, Saint-Laurent-des-Arbres. (see heading EXPOS FILES)

"MY PASSION - MY FREEDOM"
EACH ONE A SA STARTS FROM SHADE,
EACH ONE A SA STARTS FROM LIGHT,
IT IS NECESSARY TO BORE ITS SHADE,
TO PASS IN THE LIGHT.
I always, since my tender childhood, kept at the bottom of my heart, the nostalgia of my Polish origins, while being sensitive to the noble and natural matters: wood, leather, scents - nature and its splendid colors, unceasingly renewed during seasons. My five directions always in awakening, I accumulated many desires, a love of the life, beings and a serenity. All that sommeillait in me and a sculpture out of stone in an exposure, awoke my desire of creation and it was for me: "a DECOUVERTE AND LIKE a SECOND TAKE-OFF", a new birth to some extent: to model the marériaux ones, to return at the origins of the world, to touch the ground, to work it and finally CREATE. From there, my life took a new dimension: Art learns how to look at and especially to see, with better knowing the Man. It allows an interior knowledge, then a vision external of the Universe, of the Humanity, which obliges us to go towards essence, to give ourselves. I imply myself completely in a search for harmonious lines which I try to express with force and sensuality, in order to collect the mystery of femininity in all its plenitude. Moreover, liking poetry, I accompany, some of my sculptures, poêmes in connection with the current world, while leaving the imagination of each one, to rove. In addition, the sculpture on stone is an art demanding, difficult to control, which ask for an attention of every moment, a badly controlled gesture can destroy the projected sculpture. I particularly like to carve the alabaster which makes it possible to release the forms, while giving the life to the stone while letting pass the light, his interior colors and veins. "IT SHOULD BE OVERCOME PIERRE As One CUTS. IT REFINES OUR PENSEE AND OF the END, IT A the FINAL DECOUVERTE "I think there that Art is an engine of the human existence, a mean of communication, a footbridge between the cultures. I wish to continue in this way, while affirming my style, and by sharing my passion with the greatest number.
