Embroidering is not vital, which is the very reason why it is so essential.

The story of one’s life is a slow process interspersed with bits of time, a search for the ultimate nirvana, a surrender so difficult to achieve that it continually questions one’s body, one’s sensations, and one’s perceptions. This fragmentation of time confronts us with the transformations that take place. So many sensitive strategies to awaken the way we look at these in-between moments. An uncomfortable zone that celebrates life outside of any morbid representation.

Time transcends one’s body and soul. It makes one go from immense joy to emptiness, from having hopes to experiencing loss, therefore urging one’s ultimate desires to savor sensations that will eventually vanish forever.

I am fascinated with being able to highlight the complexity of the living by marking a pause in this non-linear, yet continuous process. I enjoy probing, fragmenting, cutting, playing with the envelope, and confronting the outside with the inside. I remain in love with the imperfections, with the living, and with the fragility of its rebirth.

I store and I accumulate recycled materials: worn out fabrics that were sewn, stitched, embroidered, or mixed together. Textiles form a close bond between memories and emotions because they touch us, cover us, wrap us. They tell stories, and the stories of recycled, torn, dyed, and damaged textiles become the wefts of an imaginary world. But who is to say that is it not real if it can move us ?

I was born in 1965 in Paris, but I now live and work in Saint-Etienne. I was always interested in textile, yet other opportunities were presented to me. I studied business for three years before going into an art and visual communication school in Paris. I worked for two years in a “studio de tendance” and then for fifteen years as an artistic director for advertisement, publishing, and art books. I was originally trained as a graphic designer; I now mix my passion with the enchantment of textile.​

As a child, I was fascinated with “ouvrages de dames” – books that compiled old catalogue pages, pictures of tools, ribbons, threads, and laces, and all the things that the embroiderers used.


My grandmother was a “Première Main” – she worked as a seamstress for Balenciaga in the 1930s, collecting precious materials, blending diverse textile together harmoniously. She skilfully worked on technical models and unique pieces full of history. For my part, I learned at a young age how to use needles and started embroidering floral patterns on cushions. I never stopped doing so.


For more than a decade, I have met incredible people who have accompanied me on my textile journey and allowed me to learn and discover new techniques by sharing our different artistic worlds and skills.
