About her art
In her painting work, she uses a fluid art technique. The colors spread over the canvas as the elements do on Earth or in Space, which is why we can see almost natural snapshots, like photographs of the landscape seen from the sky, oceanic reliefs, mineral canvases, cellular or sometimes cosmic… strongly anchored in abstraction.
Her practice of this technique is an application of letting go. Creativity can be inspired by anything, visible or invisible. Sometimes there is just an urgency to create, like a call. In the framework of her practice, her credo is: Live in the moment. She sees it as a creation of small universes, fragments of time, with as little control or thinking as possible, which is on the other end of the spectrum, from the thoroughness and the time demanded in the fabrication of Les Robes de Papier.
