BIOGRAPHY & ARTISTIC STEP : MiraBelle was born in the Principality of Monaco, where she lives, works and presents her creations in her studio. Passionate about drawing since her childhood, she approaches painting with watercolor in 2003. Of this preferred medium, were born many high-quality works, "moving bodies" mostly inspired by dance. "However, I missed something I do not really identified: a certain relief, texture, freedom of movement ..." MiraBelle get delivered from the technique itself by breaking with the style "conventional" and very codified of this medium to reach a more informal style where the gesture and the textures predominate. The path won't be long for the artist to find her new way and to give another direction in his painting.

"My creation go through construction, destruction, and again construction. Sprays, sluicing, impasto, burning, everything is good to get to the perfect "rendering".

"This crossover between different sensitivities, a kind of endangerment of our working and creation habits, is particularly dear to me. I consider this as a common and selfless desire falling within an experimental perspective where the artistic exploration is the main goal.” In 2012 MiraBelle creates the ART'Ochtones Association. She presides, with a lot of energy, this collective of visual artists of the Principality of Monaco and the neighboring French municipalities. Also since 2012 and under the influence of the sculptor Mateo Mornar, MiraBelle sculpts clay with passion and tenderness to turn it into sensual and curvy terra-cotta. Her original bronze castings are produced by craftsmen in Firenze (Italy). "I work without a model, I sink into reflection looking for a certain perfection in an unfinished work...
