I’m a french visual artist living and working in Cantal, France with my husband and our two children. My father, who is a sculptor, was my teacher, he taught me different artistic techniques and allowed me to get a particular gaze on my surroundings.

I enjoy listening to music while I’m working, for example I love Björk, Sigur Ros, Arvo Pärt, Daft Punk, Portishead, PJ Harvey, Radiohead, Cat Power and I adore listening to Kinrisu’s songs, a young american artist living in Paris who also makes beautiful drawings. My husband introduced me to beautiful baroque music so I love Barbara Strozzi or Monteverdi. Listening to music helps my hands to work better. I love the rhythm, the inspiration I find in it.

I take many breaks during my sessions of work: drinking some cold oat milk, eating a biscuit, taking a look at the web, playing ukulele…

When I see an inner drawing to make, I can’t wait to begin it and feel very bad if I cannot begin it immediately. Sometimes, just seeing a vintage photo from the 19th century or a beautiful paper brings me the need to work.

I love slowly falling asleep because it is a moment when I see many images. Then I catch them and keep them until next day.
