After graduating from Law School, taught in graduate schools then worked in human resources until the end of the 90’s when she joined the “Ateliers des Arts Plastiques of the city of Lyon” and studied Tribal Arts in depth.

ARTIST STATEMENT
My free spirit approach to non formal painting allows me to better adapt to Tribal Arts, my primary source of inspiration; It allows me to dive intuitively, liberated, into the creative process.

I use acrylic and mixed media, thus giving predominance to the figurative Tribal Art of Black Africa where mystic and magic tie the object to nature, like the visible world ties to the invisible. My work can be seen as a quest of a cross-road of aesthetics’ and the sacred provoking in us a liberation of the learned to attain the Truth. My work is issued from all forms of rational and calls for a collective memory where each one can find his/her own niche.
