If Surrealism and Art Nouveau movements are her fundamental influences,
Biology, Science and Psychology are important factors determining
her work's orientation.
Using brushes and oil painting as tools where the words fail,
she nevertheless aims to explore the richness of this medium.
Primarily surreal and organic, examining the sanctuaries of the Deep,
her recent works tends to develop an imagery more realist and narrative.
Growing up with a biology teacher, she spent hours watching insect's eggs hatching,
or sorting the bones of owl's pellets found in french castles during vacations.
Numerous travels around the World watered her awareness and interest for Nature,
which gonna be triggered by the rampant environmental issues.
Scandalized by the troubles caused by human on the green Planet,
she decided to bring an activist voice to her new imagery, the "Versus" project,
to guide the viewer to action versus contemplation.
