In a moving and fragmented architecture, letters are connected by entangled lines that circulate and transform them into constructions crossed by red lines, horizon, fixed point in chaos.
Process: It mainly uses Chinese ink and acrylic. Paper is important, she loves her material and works both freely and on canvas to give it a certain rigidity that allows her to play with her material and use the "accidents" on the ground.
She lives and works in Paris.
