Born in an agricultural environment, the land is for her an inexhaustible source of inspiration. Nature and the human being influence her themes of the last years. Sensitive to what is happening in the current, her paintings present vibrant scenes of a suffering humanity. She explores hybrid forms of figuration and abstraction. She uses a palette of earth colors, dark shades, apocalyptic. Monotype, mixed media, acrylic, charcoal drawing, are her favorite mediums. It offers an intuitive work where organic forms, traces and imprints of machined objects or urban aerial views compose a surrealist topography, even nightmarish, an imaginary world in ruins. Her paintings bear witness to the suffering of humanity. They emphasize the importance of sensitizing people to the slow death of our civilization (ecosystem losses, climate change, nuclear threat, wild capitalism, racism, exploitation, technological hegemony). It accounts in its own way for the despair of the human behind creation. Paradoxically, Interiority and contact with nature, maintained since childhood, retain a fundamental place. This introspective work leads her to take gestures that are sometimes random and intuitive, sometimes more thoughtful. She does not seek to reproduce nature but rather to translate the sensory experience that dwells in her mind
