Before establishing her workshop in Sète where she lives today, she travelled between New York and the south of France. She can currently be found in Georgia where she is working on a monumental sculpture project in the touristic port of Batumi.
“If I opt for lightness, it is to glide more easily, with gravity out the window, to achieve a soft landing in the world of illusion. And in this I collect and construct, diverting signs, styles, beliefs and common grounds. In this revisited world, I feature a character who resembles me, a reified double, an image of my dreams, of my fantasies and nightmares...For if I make artistic territories my playground, it is to better escape and twirl from sobriety to excess, from the profusion of colours to monochrome, from chatter to silence...”
