"Treasures" is a mixed-media piece created with both monotype and collage. A "monotype" is created by putting a piece of paper on an inked plate: a drawing is then created on the back of the paper. When you lift off the paper, the print is revealed. There are some dark patches where the paper touched the ink, creating a sort of "vintage" look. I then cut-out the monotype, and placed it on the pre-painted watercolor wash in the background. I made the watercolors myself using natural dyes, logwood and brazilwood, and have also used genuine gold leaf. The shapes are very organic and feminine, plant-like though abstract in nature. I populate the world with imaginary plants. I hope the viewer will get a sense of joy and wonder when looking at this piece. Because I have used natural dyes from plants to create this artwork, the colours will change overtime. This is very much part of the concept behind the piece, using organic materials that don't harm the environment, using colours which transform and alter overtime. This piece is sold unframed. The price includes the costs of packaging (in a cardboard box).

I am drawn to the idea that as artists, we are the channels for art pieces to be born. That there are realms where those beings dwell and somehow get expressed through us, their unique language being brush strokes, paper cut outs, clay, colour or form. As Clarissa Pinkola Estés puts it in Women who run with the wolves, one brings “an image from the unseen world into being”. My recent work speaks of the Divine Feminine, an energy that is very much of the Earth and of the body, an energy that has been suppressed for a long time in all of us, men and women alike. I believe that our future and the future of our planet depends on us reconciling with this energy, bringing it forth into the world, and re-balancing it with the Divine Masculine. My pieces are treasures that have been gathered from the ancient world. I love artists such as Joan Mitchell, Picasso, Cy Twombly and Wangechi Mutu. I was born and raised in Toulouse, in the South of France, and I now work and live in South East London. I first came to London to study a BA in Fashion Design Womenswear at Central Saint Martins, and a few years later, after working as a free-lance jewellery designer, I went on to study an MA in Painting at the Glasgow School of Art. I was commissioned to design and make jewellery for the windows at Selfridges, Oxford Street, London, as well as Menswear jewellery pieces for the Mugler Paris Fashion catwalk show, Spring-Summer 2012. My Fine Art work has been exhibited in Paris, Helsinki, Glasgow and London, and has been bought by private collectors around the world (New York, Seattle, Australia, UK...). I was longlisted for both the SaatchiArt Online Painting Showdown in 2015 and the Signature Art Prize in 2014. I was a runner-up for the Secret Art Prize, organized by Curious Duke Gallery, London, in 2014. I have also been published in Magazines and catalogues, and in 2009 I was awarded the Colin Barnes Drawing Prize, in recognition of excellence in drawing. In 2007, I won the Louis Vuitton Bag Design Competition, organized by Central Saint Martins. I also assisted Andrew Kerr in setting-up his solo exhibition “So Ensconced” (Nov 11/ Jan 12) at Inverleith House, Edinburgh.
