 " Out of a landscape, from a silent atmosphere, that the moments of life offer me, one or a few figures then appear suddenly or fade away. We have no idea where they come from but they don't just come from anywhere. My painting is right at the edge of abstract and figurative, you don't lose neither the object nor the shape from sight but all is suggested more than imposed. It finds its meaning in the course of the creating process. Memory and imagination work together revealing the emotion of a moment. Searching colour through a palette mainly composed with black and white: light and shadow.


Most of the tools are designed and created by her regarding the result to obtain: sweeping of canvas, reworking with brushes, make disappear, live a track that will be the first step of the painting in a more precise gesture, an idea to express.

Just let the desire guide you.

One painting leads to another and allows to reveal a story of his own."
