She participates in individual and group exhibitions in France, Portugal, Brazil, South Korea, and in 2017 received the first prize at the international exhibition organized in Seoul by the Korean Society of Color Studies.
Her artistic approach is oriented towards the practice of the landscape considered as a material, the elements of which collected, moved and transformed, constitute the matrix of his installations.
Highlighted during an exhibition, they present themselves as so many clues of the places crossed.
The cast shadows they generate invite the viewer to look in turn « on the features of a stranger, another or elsewhere » (Mehdi Brit).
Since 2017, she has favored charcoal drawing on canvas and is particularly interested in the metamorphosis of plants, in particular the growth of trees, whose organic character she emphasizes.
His drawings are experienced as the result (the « precipitate ») of an encounter between the plant and the human, revealed by these organic forms.
