She lived and painted in Paris for many years.

Married in Zermatt, Switzerland, she shares her life with her husband Michel, changing canadian environment to Swiss Alps and to the South of France. This versatility gives her the endless opportunity for the new ideas and it’s the constant inspiration in her life. She paints in a poetic and surrealistic style, combining both, she creates a mystical and dream like atmosphere. Her art is an open invitation to share the love for life and happinies.

ATELIER LES CREUSES - ART STATEMENT:

CREATION is a source of energy based on personal perception and expressed to the satisfaction of aesthetics and the complexity of our human nature.

TO PAINT means to combine simple things together in a complicated way.

PAINTING is like a music. It travels throughout space, unreal, unattachable, non-existing ... but present. It is an adventure, it is a feeling of emotions that detaches us from reality ... only to give us a new life and a brand new day.
