A puddle, a mirror I paint graphic and pictorial spaces. Chaotic and/or organized microcosms, my landscapes reveal multitude, profusion. I describe a metaphorical world that seems to be emerging from the infinitely small. The notion of cycle, existence, nature, and strength of living organisms are the core of my work. I refer to the 4 elements of nature, however mostly to water that she uses as a prism through which it's possible to see differently. The definition of a chromatic scale can be a starting point, the puddle is always a beginning. Water distorts, water transforms; source of life, or death, it says everything and its opposite. Painting is for me an initiatory journey to the heart of life, it is an evidence, a proof of life. These landscapes are the reflections revealed by the magnifying lens of the puddle. Sharing the work that results from this confrontation with the act of creating is for me exhilarating because it is one of the rare occasions of true meeting.
