Difficult to exactly define this designer because her achievements touch both the crafts of luxury (through decoration and fashion) and textile art.
After studying art, the thread and the needle became very quickly its main and unique means of expression. In the early nineties, she discovered the technique of Provençal boutis which literally allows to"sculpt" the fabric in order to get real low reliefs, it's a true revelation for her !
Faithful to her first love and willing to make boutis differently, she quickly creates her own designs by being inspired by Asia, Africa and going up to an abstraction that plays with rhythm, relief and color.
Meanwhile a fruitful meeting allows her to discover the work of silk and she was also conquered by this material which is so alive and so easy to work.
Today, she puts its overflowing creativity and technical expertise at the service of decoration, fashion, textile art and crafts.
