Enthusiastic, curious, dreamy and somewhat rebellious the artist addresses through her photographic work many topics such as natural places or built by man, shapes, textures, colors or the man in his environment .

"Every meeting, travel, reading or music is for me a great inspiration: U Han Bin, Korean photographer who photographs the forests, Annie Leibowitz, Diane Arbus, Salgado, Banksy, so original, every time he surprises me, Ai Wei Wei, Anish Kapoor, etc! Closer to home, Wim Delvoye, his associations of ideas are great and also open new perspectives on the world around us, and Jean Janssis bichromate gums, one of my former professors of St. Lucas, Caravaggio for the light, I am speechless at his works.
