1: Emotions flow through my hands to model the clay. The sculpture appears soft and fluid. It will only get its full strength once cast in stone or bronze. Some women are so pure, so intense, they demand to be cast in bronze. Some are more fragile, still raw and unpolished. Naked feelings, they are cast in stone. Today, women have to be spouses, mothers, entrepreneurs while staying charming and sexy. As a sculptor, I want to represent those independent, strong and beautiful women. I look at them walking in the streets. I meet them in prison. I admire them on the front page of fashion magazines. In jeans, suit, dress, heels, they each have a story to share. My ladies are cast in edition of 8. But emotions, like human beings, are unique. That's why, even though my bronzes are produced in a very limited number, I never make twice the same piece. Each of them is one of a kind by its presentation, texture or color. | So Fashion! Sculpting beautiful, sensuous and strong women.

5: Songe is a very special piece to me. Created just after my dad passed away, she represents who I am as a woman with her past, present and future. She is meditation, She is dream, She is peace and beauty. She is the sadness of time gone with the joy to be here for another tomorrow.

12: When pain is so strong. When legs are the old branches of a sad tree and feet are the roots anchoring your body to the ground. When imaging the next step is already too much. I can do it. Be stronger than the fear. It is only pain. Stand up. I will heal. | Healing - 12x10x24"
13: I created Survivor on the day I signed up for the 3 day walk against Breast Cancer. I walked 60 miles among few thousand wonderfully strong women. It was long and exhilarating at the same time. All dressed in pink we were walking together so no more women -or men - will have to suffer from cancer. | Survivor - 10x12x43”

22: Women are strong, sensuous, graceful. I capture their feelings in movement, color and passion. I create each sculpture with my heart. My raw material is emotion, pain and joy, love, impossible dreams and terrible suffering. My medium is clay. Energy, tenderness, struggle and bliss flow from my hands to model it. A pressure of the thumb, the cut of a tool, and the first line appears. I let water drops fall on the piece. Their journey is smooth, dripping from a shoulder to the hips, rolling down to die at the feet. The light bounces off the surface, the shadow becomes the curve’s secret. Round, sharp, deep; little by little the shape emerges. I cast the finished piece in stone or bronze, to give it strength, texture and color. Now the story is told, my work is ready to be seen, to be touched. My sculptures are voluptuous, please caress them. Their lines are smooth and strong. Like women they need to be loved. They have emotions, listen to them. They speak of the fight to become who we are, the dream for a world of harmony, the beauty of being alive, of being a woman, a human. They tell our story.
