The techniques I use depend on my emotions, but there is always an abundance of colour in all of my work…

My story, my background

Attracted to colours, shapes and textures, I am always curious about working with different « objects » and « materials ».

I love layered colours, working the acrylic with spatulas, cardboard, metal wire and mesh…

Emotions also overlap… I have an expressive nature with strong sensivity which means I mentally project my feelings and the energies around me onto the construction and organisation of the painting…

 

I work in two phases when constructing my paintings. Initially, I imagine and dream and in time, I see it, visualize it and it must come out… Then, I regroup, set up all the material and get to work…

This is a magical moment when I am suspended in time, when ideas and feelings merge and become form, where sand must be added to accentuate movement, where palettes and cardboard full of colours help me freely transcribe what I had imagined…
