the classical aesthetic of her portraits, evoke some of the great Baroque painters of the Golden Age, such as Van Dyck or Caravaggio.


her systematic plastic language, black background and natural light, causes the characters to arise, giving them a poetic and disconcerting aspect at the same time.


her research on masks, costumes and clothing is at the service of another research, more intimate, more interior. she questions us on the way we express or hide our identities and how they follow one another or overlap in our own life.
