Artistic focus

 

Her etchings are made following the traditional processes of aquafortis, aquatint, drypoint, softground… but she also mixes different techniques and uses colors prints (monoprints), collages (chine-collé, marouflage) and watercolor. Monotypes offer her more freedom in terms of size and color.

 

Her artistic point of view is not concerned with translating an exact representation of her surroundings. Resemblance no longer has any importance, but the textures, the colors, and the quality of the strokes are primordial because they create the emotions.

 

Real, unreal, etched, painted, figuration and abstraction all combine together without any need to fall into a well-defined category.
