After graduating from the Saint-Luc Institute in Brussels in 1998, I first worked as a stylist for a renowned Belgian designer, assistant costume designer and dresser at the Opéra de la Monnaie in Brussels, then I moved into design and graphic design.
In 2003, I became a mother and naturally took up my brushes again
. From shop windows to exhibitions, from designer markets to comic strip festivals, I was offered my first children's book publlished in 2008
! Today I dedicate myself to my son, to illustration for different publishing houses in Europe and to my work as a painter.
I am also a teacher in Plastic Arts and Art History which I teach in an art school but I have a true love for children and young adults with special needs, such as autism and mental deficiency. The report is true, it is impossible to cheat, like when you reach that moment of painting where you are all there and true.
My drawings and canvases are characterised by universes full of poetry, colours and lightness, like alliances of genres and eras, where dream and reality, which I expressly wish to be naive, are mixed in a heterogeneous way, I shout out loud and clear a "good" world.Deeply humanist, I try to find in this world of surrealist poetry an answer to the urgent need of our world to be able to just "be". And in this concept of the power to "be", the questioning of benevolence, the relationship with the other, with the fauna, the flora, with women, with their fears, their false beliefs, comes into play. There is an urgent need for benevolence towards all our humanity.
I express myself through digital painting sur bois and then traditional techniques of oil painting, collages... and since this summer 2020, video, which like books, allows us to tell, transmit and remember. Leaving the imprint of the "good" even through the sad and in mirror, the sad through the poetic and colourful.
