“Oh light that penetrates everything, one with all and all with one,
Come down in me through the canal.
Flood-me with your rays
To set me free.
Unify me with the whole soul
who shines in the obscurity of night.
Set me free from space and time
Free from the veil of night.
Me, Child of Light
I am commanding:
I am free forever from obscurity”.

Once graduate, she realizes for an architect office mural paintings and tapistries. These arts are based on technical exigences which condition henceforth all her work.
In 1973, she devotes her talent for graphics which she prints herself. A heavy press, the center of her home, is surrounded by an infinity of little shapes, bases for her engravings. Her permanent creation uses all surface of the paper (Arches) where emptiness (as Zen) harmonizes her modern expression seeked nowadays by numerous public (Musée des Arts Moderne de Paris...) and private collectors.Read more
