my artistic evolution
I have always loved to design and create, so I first became an architect and, more recently, an artist. In my studies, I had to design
a lot by hand, with pencil and ink. Interested in art, I felt the need to try out oil colours, pencil, charcoal, watercolours, pen and ink…
Then my profession became digital. Plans and views began being made with CAD drawings.
Consequently, I learned several software programs in order to create with a computer. After that, I learned Japanese calligraphy and sumi-e.
In 2012, I began working at Calligrane (a stationery and art paper store in Paris).
Being surrounded by papers, I am inspired by the shape of the leftovers.
The idea is to upcycle and transform them into art pieces.
surplus becomes art
These pictures might help understand my technique and process.
Some new ideas for artwork have come up as I reorganise my limited work space.
Most of the time I’m working with my knees on the floor (Japanese style).
