Artist Statement

In my work, beings of dream and intimacy migrate slowly to the merry-go-round of birth, death, and rebrith. Different periods and series rub shoulders in my decades of paintings. Duality breathes deeply, and from one life to the next, powerful feminine energy dominates
moving, introspective, multiple, often wrapped in a gentle violence.
Since 1989, I have been traveling and working between France
and the United States. I had my first solo show in 1999 at the
24 Gallery in New York City. In 2004 my work was represented and
exhibited at the Grant Gallery. In 2005 I
left for Mexico, where I maintained a studio for three months in
Oaxaca. From 2005 to 2010, my work was represented and exhibited
by the Opera Gallery in New York City. During those years I
regularly painted in New York. Since 2010 my work has been exhibited
in Paris, Brussels, Luxembourg, Metz, and Nancy, where I live.

A beautiful 140pages book on my painting has just been released
