"My work is about emergence. In my art, I convey the sense of courage and difficulty of emergence of our own inner being. It is a universal desire, insofar as we show our talent, our true personality to the world. We are often double people, social and private. I see the beauty in the world. I am inspired by the immense pleasure and sense of discovery resulting from the continuous observation around me. I use photographic materials found in fashion magazines. The images of top models influence me especially with the pose, the gestures or the expressions of the face. In my current paintings, I also explore images of famous people, often artists. For me, these people have discovered courage. My paintings reflect the meaning of beauty, resilience and, despite the difficulties, peace."
