    "How do we look at our planet? How do we relate to the nature that surrounds us? I feel like we have to relearn how to look at nature to re-establish our relationship with her. Nature life and its vulnerability fascinates and inspires me. Especially the nature that we cannot see at first glance, the tiny organisms hidden from our eyes interest me enormously. Nature belongs to itself and I ask her who she is through my drawings.

    Through drawing, I find an intimate way to connect with the beauty and mystery of nature hidden from our eyes. I am amazed at the complexity and importance to life on Earth of these tiny invisible creatures. I look at them as individual entities. I let them talk to me and I combine them creating new creatures. 

    Using paper as if it were a microscope, I translate my observations and reflections into detailed pastel drawings in vivid colours. Drawing with pastel and charcoal leads me to use my hands intensely. Stroking the paper to add colour, soft or intense caresses. The sound of chalk on paper in the silence of my study, brings me deeply closer to the being of my drawing and the attention it demands.

    Each drawing begins in general with an investigation based on my collection of images that I found in books, internet or specialized scientific magazines. Without sketches and after the inspiration gathered in the images, the intense collaboration between the drawing and me begins. I let the drawing begin its own journey. In this process "I speak" with my drawing, there are exchanges, silences and listening spaces. We do it together, the drawing and me".
