I paint landscapes as they are when we are not there. In their intimacy. This is why I do not represent either characters or animals. They would disturb this moment that I overhear, as if in secret.
In my pastels, I attach myself to the essential and resist the detail, so that everyone can enter this intimacy, walk there, find their own. My painting is not a photograph, a snapshot that fixes a memory. On the contrary, she wants to paint the moment in the movement and the changing character of Nature. Don’t freeze anything. Render the light, the air. Invite to the inner journey.
