My work is intended to be a way to illustrate or to question certain visions and practices we have or make of our Earth. While interested in the ecological impact that may hide behind an artistic practice promoting collaboration with nature, I use methods ranging from criticism to the use of natural materials for contemplative purposes. often takes shape with the use of natural elements in my work.

Whether in sculpture or in painting, my artwork seeks to highlight a personal conception of nature; collaboration or a close interconnection with it. I believe that Art can play a role in creating new links between humanity and the ecosystem.

For me, to add a feeling of hope to my artistic research can bring more. It's even to take a strategic position. My approach is based on the fact that one must believe in the possibility of self renewal; that one must remain optimistic for the future, where society moves towards overall stability. As an artist, I wish to create links between the contemplative aspect of art and that, more critical, of society, in an optimistic and sometimes humoristic way.

I would like to inspire and uphold the need for change into a world that supports its people, that questions its way of life and regenerates its environment in the quest for improved ethics and philosophy.
