Inspired by images found in news and mass media, I translate images into large scale paintings, silkscreen prints or work in glass. I intend to show different perspectives to what we see or hear in social media and news outlets; demonstrating that what we hear or see is not always what it really is, changing the meaning of the original images into new ones, overlapping two images that do not have any link with one another to force them to share a new meaning, offering a new perspective, a new story. 


The works created involve a complex making process. I start by translating elements of the selected news photographs that I find the most striking into simpler shapes. I then manually transfer these to small wood blocks/lino that I carve and use to make prints. I take photographs of these prints and manipulate

them on a computer in order to arrive at a new composition. Finally, I silkscreen these images onto paper or glass, or project them onto large sheets of paper or canvas, which I then paint. The finished paintings resemble large-scale prints. 


My practice reflects my interest in the works of a number of artists, including Christiane Baumgartner, Sigmar Polke, andy Warhol and William Kentridge in terms of their political engagement and their working methods. 



   Born in France I studied in Poitiers and Bordeaux, graduating with a Masters in Art History. I left France when I was 22 years old and have travelled ever since. My first stop was in England where I became a teacher, then I moved to Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela, where I taught art at the International School. I headed next to the United States where I became a full-time artist. 

When I returned to the UK, I established a permanent working place at Make Space Studios, London and pursued a dream of attending and graduating the MA course in fine art at City and Guilds Art School in London. I am actually an artist in residence at Ochre Print Studio, Guildford until June 2023. 

   Being away from my home country I always needed to keep myself informed of the current affairs so the media played a very important role in my daily life.  Some social and political issues like migration and inequality for example, have a significant impact on my life so being informed at all times was key. Knowing what is happening in the world keeps me rooted but has also made me become very critical about how major issues are handled by governments and political organisations. I aim to address these issues and concerns in my work.
