" Be it packing cardboards accumulated in the studio, pictures picked up online, those of relatives serving as models or even profile pictures of stangers found on social networks, the collection is an essential part of my design process. It allows me work from real objects reflecting our eveday life and our time in order to question their uses, their relations.
Poor materials, cardboards, interest me for their sociological memory, and affective aspects.

Metis french-brazilian, on the border of two cultures without either choosing one, the question of identity and self-representation are recurring themes in my work, thought it is not necessarily autobiographical.

In this identity quest, the human face always fascinated me. Every gaze is an interrogation for me, a problem to be resolved. In this regard, i mean reinvent the portrait infusing it with the fascination I have for human and attempting to enhance it with a modern aesthetic questionning self-image in our society. "
