“My happiness and fulfillment are sharing my passion, love of life, the universe, colors, light, and multiple emotions with others through my work.”.
WAS THERE A PIVOTAL MOMENT WHEN YOU DECIDED TO FOLLOW YOUR PATH AS AN ARTIST?
I have always been attracted by drawing and especially colors. After my desire to make myself as available as possible to raise my four children, once they took off, I turned again to my first passions, including, naturally, painting.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK FOR US?
As I told you, I have always been passionate about beauty and colors. So the transition to creation came naturally. I first tried watercolor, but the rendering of my work did not satisfy me, so I quickly switched to oil painting, which suits me better to convey my emotions.
I started by doing figurative works like “Buisson ardent” or “Venise.” Then, after a few years, I embarked on abstraction and informality, allowing me to express my feelings, sensations, and moods better.
WHAT DOES YOUR WORK AIM TO SAY?
The concepts of my art are the search for colors, light, and the beauty of the world and life, which allows me to reveal and share my emotions, the most profound sensations with others, revealing with force the personal meaning of my thoughts, my feelings, the struggle between good and evil, my awareness of the existence and all the events that shape it.
I express, through my paintings, all my moods using my color palettes, light, and movement.
HOW DO YOU THINK YOUR WORK FITS WITHIN SOCIETY IN OUR PRESENT TIME?
I think everyone is looking for the beauty surrounding us, the deep meaning and mystery of life that allows us to go through existence with hope and courage.
My work is part of the search for this beauty and transcendence of its feelings to see the wonders surrounding us and support us to go through the trials that life can bring us. I humbly hope that, through my work, I can give hope and fulfillment to society.
WHEN LOOKING BACK, WHAT ARTWORKS COME TO MIND THAT MOST RELATE TO YOUR LIFE STORY?
Some of my works reflect more particular moments of my life or feelings than others. For example, Buisson’s ardent represents a fire of hope in a dark period of my existence. Poppies allowed me to express a deep need for the beauty of nature; through infinite, I wanted to trace my life experiences with the duality of good and evil. But, as I said, these are just examples. Each of my works represents my most intimate emotions and sensations at the moment of their creation.
WHO ARE YOUR BIGGEST INFLUENCES?
All the pictorial arts attract me deeply, as much the artists and the art of the Renaissance with Da Vinci and Raphael as the more modern impressionist art like Monnet, Pissarro, and Renoir, without forgetting the abstraction with Kandinsky.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS?
My works do not follow any defined process. Instead, my inspiration and feelings of the moment during my work bring out the depth of my sensations.
WHAT VISUAL REFERENCES DO YOU DRAW UPON IN YOUR WORK?
I have no particular visual reference. Space, nature, and the universe, with their beauty and uniqueness, are my only guides for my work.
ANY UPCOMING PROJECTS?
I have exhibited in many cities and countries and still have many requests; unfortunately, I can not satisfy all of them. Still, my greatest desire is to be exhibited in one of the largest museums in the world for a long solo exhibition.
Currently, I am actively preparing for Art Basel and the Art Fair in Amsterdam while I have just finished the Salon des Indépendants in Paris during the Art Capital exhibition.
