Nocture, huile sur toile, 100/100 cm


Rythmic, swaying between materials and forms. Privileging oil painting, layering tones and colours, she shapes.
Masking or revealing the transparency, she refines, she ornaments. 
The brush takes off, the palette knife strikes;
with a rag or her own fingers, she uses any tools necessary to create the expected effect, the desired equilibrium;
then, when the eye gets closer, the subtlety appears. She likes to play with curves, lines, stripes in every direction;
setting free her inspiration, her doubts, her vitality.
Influenced by spirituality, her painting echoes with composers, thinkers, poets and holy scriptures.



Music, leading to ten years of learning and sharing.
At that time, her passion grows for plastic arts, especially painting and more modern and contemporary periods. 
After a baccalaureate and a degree in management she starts a promising career in export, but the successive births of her three sons disrupts her profesionnal future. By the age of 30, her appeal for materials and colours rises up again. Then, painting becomes the main way to express herself.
For more than 8 years, she receives the teaching and the support of the artist Doro.T. In her workshop she learns how to master the fundamental pictorial techniques.
Fascinated by the links between the different art forms, her first striking encounter with the public takes place at The Embarcardère in Lyon during a concert-exhibition. Revolved around a piece for flute by André Jolivet (1905-1974), freely inspired by the composer's works (Incantations and Ascèses) her eleven paintings are displayed and projected on stage following the music.
