From a young age, I have been attracted to painting and fine art. I began painting as a teenager. Adolescence is an essential and complicated time, and I often felt I wasn’t understood. The journey from child to teenager to adult created a kind of vertigo. I began to express my anger and frustrations by projecting my feelings on walls, clothes, canvases; it was a feeling of relief. I would draw geometrical shapes to escape and dream of a better world.
Suddenly, I had to face the reality of living with a life-altering disease. I realized that existence hangs only by a thread and that I had to attempt everything to become fulfilled.
As a result, I undertook to make women happy by helping them to accept themselves morally and physically. I put aside painting and drawing to dedicate myself entirely to my work, setting up a holistic practice dedicated to women’s well being. For 10 years, I coached hundreds of women who were seeking my guidance to find confidence and their femininity. Unconsciously, I began to accept my ever-present disease.
Only later did I realise that the energy I invested in women during those years, significantly impacted and influenced my future creativity. When I met the man who would become my husband, I felt the urge to excavate feelings that I had buried for fifteen years. I began drawing and painting again.
I sell my business in 2011. It is decided: I want to dedicate myself entirely to my art. Self-taught, I am inspired by personal events, emotions, spiritual moments, and images of women in daily life, which I express by playing with light and shadow, using black and white or strong colours.
My work can be split in three periods:
From 2009 to 2011, my abstract work pla
ys with shades and patterns of blacks and greys that I cause to vibrate thanks to the application of effects.
From 2011 to 2015, I meet an artist who guides me in the acquisition of techniques on nudes. Some more figurative themes have been enriching my work where I have been toning up the colour and staging the nude.
Since 2015, my move to India has significantly influenced my work. The vastness of the country challenges me to express the diversity and contrasts among Indian women. Their gaiety, their laughter, their energy are striking compared to European women and fascinate me.
Canvases increase in size and become brighter. Collages dress up my women to
respect their traditons
Today, painting is my daily occupation, and I deeply know that I need it for ever.
