Welcome to a world of feminine forms, a sensory path in the heart of matter between full and empty, between lines and curves.

Biography

COURSE

At 7, an artistic vocation and studies of Art. Then I had children (4 at the time 5 so far), I put the brushes and resumed studies and worked in Management!

A new life in the Tarn in a more commercial business, close to creative teams ... and there the orange appeared in my life, a wind of freedom came back ...

My life changes in 2006. A work accident that leaves me - still today - after-effects, a passage in a wheelchair, operations ...

And the painting is back, a way to color these difficult moments.

After a tragic family episode, I painted nothingness: either black. Nothing.

I went to earth for appeasement, the sensuality of touch, and I shaped what I was drawing.

I won the Artoulouse Prize in 2017 in contemporary ceramics, which, with the cessation of medical operations, marked a turning point in my artistic career.

And as a sign, it is also the moment when I settled with my family on the Basque-Landes coast to create my workshop in Ondres.



ARTISTIC APPROACH

My artistic creation strives to represent in particular the forms of female bodies highlighted by the voids to make the emotions intimate

The voluptuous female bodies escape from the present representation of the woman object and find in my work a scene to express themselves. The projectors illuminate the void, the shadows of the full stage the emotion born of the softness of generous curves and sensual attitudes. The vibration of enamelled colors on the material dresses these bodies with the reflection of exacerbated emotions. Mine and those of all women.
