Artist Statement

Since 1992 I play with fabrics using traditional patchwork techniques which led me to a more contemporary style.I find inspiration in the images registered by my memory during the daily walks I do with my dog in parks or along the Leman’s lake, from images from TV programs or from magazines. It is not about reproducing a pattern, but it is a kind of personal and expressive language mixing sewing, embroidery, painting, collage…In my landscapes, I only use squares and rectangles cut and settled in an intuitive way. The composition and the surface arrangement are the record of my daily mood and reflect my conscious and unconscious emotions.My fantasy decides of the colours and the light which intensity and tone give life to the whole design. I mainly use hand dyed fabrics and batiks, so strong with their shapes, shades and so vivid colours. I add details with screen printing or any other mixed media, then I work on texture with threads, wool or whatever I have, and finally I concentrate on the embroidery I do by machine.I feel deeply concern by the impact our way of life have on our world and especially on the wild world, and it is with a positive tone of voice that I reproduce in my textiles landscapes a whole world of colours.
