Artist's Work


    Work introduction

    For years, while raising my daughters, my work was intimate and linked to family and social bonds. In this period I worked with totem-like shapes expressing the static conception of life of many people and the difficulty to modify this behavior.


    Later on, this vision changed and I started working with egg-shapes in an attempt to show different ways of walking life, then static totem-shapes turn into the egg-like shapes as a metaphor of life.


    Today I have two lines of work using eggs and flowers to express feelings, and the series “Banquets” and “Step by Step” which reflect social behaviors and choices.


    Finally, I believe these feelings and reflections gives the possibility of building our own way in life and our work as artists.
