Printmaker / Textile Designer


Coming from France , I was born in a small fishing village along the Normandy coast and I have been living in Liverpool for ten years.
My main interest in the past twelve years has been printmaking (linocut, monoprinting, screen-prining and etching). My work is influenced by the exploration of colours, natural elements, shapes and texture. I like working in layers and exploring the process of mark making. Each layer is a piece of memory lost in the past but necessary to build the future. Because of the complexity of my way of working, each print is an original piece. I like the viewer to find something personal in my work.
Recently, I have been able to combine my printing work with a love for textile. Through different techniques, an original design is printed onto a piece of fabric that is consequently incorporated into the creation of a bag. Each bag that I have made is unique.
