« Transmutation is this mysterious process whereby anything that has been lived, received, ingrained, even unconsciously, is then altered within oneself, and then distilled as if in an alembic : such that an essence evaporates, and another materializes. Something stripped of the anecdotal comes into being.
This process needs a burning fire: the fire of desire, which smolders, spreads, explodes, boils over or irrupts ».
Born in Paris, in 1954.
Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts, in Paris (studio Jean-Marie Granier).
Practise the drawing, the engraving (sandbank point on copper mainly) and the painting, oil and emulsion on canvas. The recurring themes of her work are: the light, the vegetable world as the fabric living, trees or herbs, the water, elements, and also the human body. It is not about representation, about "landscape" or about "nudes" but rather about internal images, which at the same time carry a symbolic aspect and arouse the dream to the one who looks. The purpose is not to represent the world, but to make visible the breath which drives her, the energy.
In 2009-2010, the " paths of light ": vertical trajectory of light which crosses and illuminates the opacity.
