My art explores the notion of memory and play, drawing inspiration from collected objects and Maine’s natural beauty.  My latest work invents and re-invents nature, like a game with a hint of mischief.  I invite the child in each of us to explore environments that often incorporate sound, scent, and performance.  I embrace collaborations with my creative peers broadening the scope of medium. My process cultivates community through partnerships with local schools and organizations.

My work is materially based and inspired. I challenge myself to transform any material, whether natural or manmade until the frontier between the two is blurred. In my studio I am particularly fond of my collections of antique gloves, hand-knit mittens with 6 fingers, children’s journals, and have a passion for anything fabricated with love. I use processes of a repetitive nature; joining objects together one by one, reassembling, repairing, and preserving a human trace piece by piece. I work on several projects at once, some based in my studio, some in my garage and some in my dining-room.  As an artist-mother-wife, time is so compartmentalized and I have to be smart to weave my art into my everyday life. I’ve learned that a woman’s life is but fragments of stolen time.

My large scale projects are rich in material and are labor intensive demanding serious manpower. Cultivating genuine communication through collaboration, I recruit numerous volunteers to help construct my works of art, teaching each person the necessary skills and working alongside my team as we build art and relationships. I believe there is a strong community that is born through this mode of working.  Based in Maine, I now draw my workforce from the increasing population of asylum-seekers, workers with disabilities, the elderly, and local schools with an ulterior motive: blending our population. Having lived abroad for 25 years, I understand how it feels to be an outsider and the importance of fostering community.

My most recent work focuses on the impact of man and digital technology on our environment and creative experiences.  Technology erases certain everyday sensual pleasures from our lives. Manual tasks slowly disappear, certain species in nature disappear and communication evaporates into cell phones. Work and money tip the scale and play and respect for nature are left behind.  My work aims to even the scales.  I play tricks on the audience, create freaks of nature and invite visitors to play artist’s games that spur conscientiousness.  I hope my Art acts as an elixir that transports you to a child-like state of mind, awakening your curiosity and senses.

Born in 1961 in Pennsylvania, I am a Franco-American artist, presently living and working in Portland, Maine.

Prolific collaborator, as both teacher and artist, I try to foster an ethos of generosity and creative exchange through my public engagement work. Making art and collaborating with multigenerational communities for over 30 years in faraway places like Albania and India, I understood the universal need for creative multi-sensory interaction. When playfulness meets a myriad of materials, magic happens. Today, living in Maine. I am impassioned by my collaborations with dementia sufferers partnered with University students and marvel at these elder’s spontaneity and how essential creative and joyful stimulation is to their well-being. This work has driven me to privilege play and create art that encourages the public to be present in the moment.

Sculptor/ installation artist, I received my bachelor’s degree from UVM and Villa Arson, France. Working in New York as a set designer and art director, I continued exhibiting abroad as fine artist. Motherhood brought me to Europe where I lived for 25 years, where I received my MFA from the Ecole Supérieure d’Art d’ Aix and studied choreography and education at IUFM Blois. My professional experiences range from designing a traveling multi-sensory museum, collaborations with a blind children center, children’s museum, work with toy companies, children’s films, and teaching.
