After acquiring the basics of engraving during the amateur practice course at the Ecole Supérieure d'Art des Pyrénées (Pau), I have since approached the techniques of printmaking as a pretext for experimentation and research.
Since 2017, in a climate of emulation and sharing within a collective of 5 engravers from Pau called "les GraveuZes", I have been working around the human body, between reverie and reality.
Saving size, intaglio engraving, monotype technique, I divert traditional uses to find my universe: cutting, collage, insertion of embroidery, words, gold etc.
My hands trace, print, cut, embroider. They work.
Through my “augmented” engravings of hand embroidery, gold, collage, etc. two stories are told: mine, the one that guides me during the creation, relayed by the one that everyone reads facing the finished work.
