Born in Saint Aignan (41) France, it’s in Brussels that I grew. Grand-daughter of a seamstress and daughter of a painter, mosaiste and inner-architect, I bathed all my childhood in color, forms and materials… art and creation. At a very young age my interest goes for drawing, painting and geometry.

 

Diversified artist, I have a very curious nature and I am a meddler of all that is artistic. I have a thirst to understand and a visceral need to be in contact with the matter and to express myself with my hands. The concept of form and volume is taking a big place in my artistic approach.

 

Towards the end of the nineties I meet Audrey Otterbein in Langen, Germany and take my first class in Tiffany and mosaic at her “Glas Gestaltung” studio. Glass in relationship to the light operates its magic on me and takes a strong hold on me, to release me no more. At the beginning, I reproduce existing patterns. But very quickly, I will develop my own creations.

 

It’s in 2012 at the “Centre Belge du Vitrail Pierre Majerus” and under the attentive eyes of Pierre Dognaux, Patrick de Jager and Saskia Lupini-Klute that I take my first classes in leaded stained glass and traditional painted glass with vitreous paints. The need to create becomes even stronger in me.

 

At the end of 2014 I finally end my career as an educator to launch my own studio where I specialize in the creation of stained glass and decorative glass. My approach is to revisit stained glass, Tiffany and mosaic, sometimes secular arts, while preserving the expertise; innovate and create original objects to integrate them into the interior decor. I draw my inspiration from my experiences, my readings, my impressions, my everyday influences.

 

I do not cease to be fascinated by the complexity of glass work which requires artistic creativity but also technical skills, rigor, perseverance, method, precision, sensitivity for detailed work… all these qualities which I thrive to develop anew and which I hope show in my work.

 

With some 25 years of glass work experience I want to share my passion for this extraordinary matter. More than even I also want to transmit my expertise and put my teaching capacities at the service of children, teenager and adults showing interests in glass.
