Artistic approach

For many years I have explored the digital painting medium to render the light and the nobility that I have always admired in classical painting while seeking to translate them into a contemporary style. To this day, even if I still paint with digital tools (Preference for software: ArtRage ™), a need for contact with the material brings me back gradually towards a traditional medium that I particularly like, watercolour. All the more, music takes up a lot of space in my creative process. I often have “stereo color” vision or vice versa. And, with the harp, I can translate this phenomenon.

With my analog or digital brushes and with my strings, I explore the universes of Fantasy to reveal my creativity without restraint. To find the inspiration: I take a lot of pictures, I make sketches with pencils, I explore the Celtic repertory with the harp and, Regularly, I join a Session.

I was a dreamy and curious little girl. I became a sensitive and contemplative adult. Through my artistic work, I want to create an emotion by bringing a modern look influenced by my time, my immediate world and my spirituality on sources rich in inspiration: folklore, traditional music, tales, legends, myths And beliefs of human civilizations of all times and all worlds. Finally, my approach could be summarized in a few words:

“Create an Imaginary that delights the mortal heart.”
