Nature is full of colors. Magnificent, vibrant and living colors.
Through my art I intend to tell their stories, show their power. I intend to share the inspiring and healing beauty of colors made of plants.
And forget for a moment that in our everyday life we are surrounded by chemical colors. We do not know where they come from what they are made of. And we would probably prefer not to.
As an artist, I want to tell you another story. I want to show your the magical power of natural colors, and especially plant-based colors, through paintings, drawings, prints and videos.
To me, natural inks are a way to meditate and find some peace in a world that is dominated by plastic and chemicals.
I do not see Plants and Nature as a mere "subject", but rather as powerful partners to work with and build relationships with. From picking and growing to ink making and drawing, plants are at every step of the creative process.
Inspired by the living an vibrant nature of vegetal inks, I create parallel universes on paper in a very intuitive way, while following the ongoing energies.
In these dreamlike worlds, everyone can travel freely and draw his/her own stories from it.
Trees, waves, waterfalls, mountains, roots, oceans, desert, earth : they appear before our tired eyes and make us breath just for a short moment.
Drawing comes from time to time and finds magical creatures in these fantasy landscapes. They are running away from our chaotic reality, in an urgent search of Nature and peace.
