About

Initially interested by children’s books illustration, I discovered ceramics during my college years. Compelled by the many possibilities offered by that material, I continued my exploration. And little by little, stories started to emerge within my creations!

Clay, with its endearing imperfections, its flexibility and its rich textures, showed me who I was meant to be: a ceramicist-illustrator.

My work process alternates spontaneity and meticulousness. Through various techniques, I handbuild small-scale earthenware pieces. Once the forms are achieved, they are decorated and combined in a way that will suggest narratives.

In the intimate details of each scene, I hope that viewers —children and adults alike— will feel a sense of wonder.
