"I am inspired by the various cultures I discovered over the years. They taught me to recognize that the more I know, the more I realize I do not know.
In my work, I look to express deep understandings of life, some of them influenced by philosophical approaches I have been exposed to. My main subjects are feminity, emotions, and feelings about life. My playground is made of materials, wax, molds, resins, pewter and bronze."

« My work is mainely figurative, I use the bodies’ position of my sculptures to share my emotions and perception of the world. My sculptures’ names are such as Balance, L’envol, Humility. Gratitude or Feminity.. »
I love playing with materials. Each one of my sculptures are the result of a long process, in which i interact with it. This is an empirical, definitely experimental approach, a real playground which make me vibrate everyday. My favorite materials are Bronze, Pewter, Steel and Wood..
