How can I explain my art when each piece I create is a story I am telling myself, whose ending I do not know and which unfolds, while I am telling it?
What are the elements of my own syntax? What are the formal, philosophical, spiritual and practical circumstances, which inform the making of my art? One of the leading forces is the quest for meaning, coherence, and identity, in an unstable and uncertain world.
Using mostly pen, markers, ink markers, color pencils, wax pastels and collage on paper, my present artistic process is a playful yet intense processing of the Western myths, and of the pervasive female archetypes I grew up with. This led me to a customized iconography, and personal mythology. I am aware of the mortality of everything, including the sun and the galaxies, and that our planet is a tiny drop in the universe. The cycles and miracle of life fascinate me, and my work is filled with a sense of wonder and precariousness, but I hope also with fun and liveliness. Throughout my life as a self-taught artist, I have been moving between color and line, formal aesthetics and expressionism, figuration and abstraction, art and crafts. As a mature artist, I am refining and synthetizing my former experiments, exploring feelings and emotions through abstract colors and lines as well as portrait and figure drawing. Feminism, my ambivalences regarding my Catholic background, the internal and external obstacles of growing as a woman artist, the limitations encountered by adjusting to a different culture and raising two children, all have contributed to the art I am doing now.
