I was born in France in 1954 and I’m living in Pontivy
Former agricultural engineer, part-time teacher in biology and bioethics I am a self-taught textile artist. I started to create wall hangings about 30 years ago. In 1989, feeling the need for more personal expression, I took evening classes in graphic expression and sculpture courses in order to progress. These courses completely changed my work, it was essential training to become artist working with fabrics, at once palette and sensual, tactile and bendable material.
I still divide my time between teaching bioethics and creating textile art works inspired
by photographs, books, news reports or debates on TV concerning contemporary problems
very often in touch with the feminine condition.
I make figurative artworks, many of which are portraits.
In these works, the narrative, the techniques and the title are part of the whole.
Atmosphere of fear created by « The Rumor » which refutes, misrepresents, reinvents the story spread from black crow to black crow.
Materials : cotton, linen, silk , metallic textiles.Techniques: free-motion machine embroidery,
pull-thread work, button loop, hand embroidery, machine quilted.
The lack of water and the necessity to find it are a real nightmare for those who go through that.
I am a member of France-Patchwork (F), Fiber Art Fever (F), Fibre Art Synergy (F) and I’m SAQA( JAM)
I started to enter french and international exhibitions in 1989 ; some of my works are in private and corporate collections in France, England, Sweden and USA.
