"My path brought me from Germany to the Normandy coast. From east to west, the water attracts and attracts me. This environment populated by fish, the source and resources of man frees me. Its lightness supports, I let myself float at the top of the waves. They break, I find myself on the concrete of the city. There, like a fish in the net, I continue my ride. My fish is found printed in the concrete of the Concrete is a material that endures, typical of our society. In a thousand years a new geological layer will have been formed, that of concrete. "

Holder of a doctoral thesis in geology, this Havraise of German origin, manipulates concrete by producing artistic objects and "tables" for ten years. Using an original technique, she shapes objects out of cement cast on a trellis and boxed in a wooden frame. The addition of colored pigments, metal parts, fragments of mirrors, ceramic fragments, finalize the rendering, leaving a large part to the unpredictability of the mixes while retaining a figurative rendering. The reference to the "Perret" architecture is obvious for this guide-lecturer, approved by the Ministry of Culture since 2003, at the origin of workshops for children offering to experiment with concrete. Currently also represented at the "Galerie Gloux" in Concarneau, the artist already worked in the city of Le Havre in 2003. You will notice a low relief in tinted concrete on the facade of the "Maison Odyssée", the work chosen after competition and financed by the "yellow pieces". The artist is engaged in the dissemination of Art by creating with his association "Regart" the open door of the workshops of artists from the Le Havre region, "Open Art", which takes place every two years. Another successful project is the organization of artistic exchanges with the "H2O gallery" in Magdeburg in Germany.
