'Earth is the essential element of my work. The earth in which the plants take root and the earth formed by my hand. My current work is influenced by the knowledge I acquired at the Ecole du Breuil and by my artistic career as a ceramist. They combine knowledge of plants and an experimental attitude that touches on sensations, memories and the intimate. I am inspired by the uncultivated landscapes of roadsides, by this lush, fragile and ordinary nature. I use the plants growing near my workplace, they are the sources of inspiration and inspiration of my artistic approach.'
