As a contemporary artist, my chosen medium is encaustic, an ancient form that resonates with the depth of time. My artistic journey intertwines seamlessly with my daily sketching routine, where I delve into mark-making and gesture. Through this practice, I absorb the essence of my surroundings, weaving together the visual memory of place—its forms, colours, textures, and patterns.

The transmutation of these experiences finds expression in my paintings, not through overt consciousness but as a manifestation of the embodiment of my encounters in my hands and body.

A profound fascination with geological processes, shaped by time and weather, drives my artistic exploration. I am drawn to the layers that build up over time, gradually revealed by the relentless forces of nature. In my studio, I emulate these geological processes in my art-making.

Each painting undergoes a series of stages, mirroring the natural forces that mould landscapes—construction, destruction, growth, and decay.

Much like an archaeological process, my paintings evolve through the physicality of layering pigmented beeswax, scraping it back while cooled, scoring, and shaping. This intricate technique results in highly tactile surfaces that invite viewers to explore the nuanced history embedded within each work

I am a professional visual artist with a BA (Hons), originally from La Rochelle in the southwest of France, and currently residing in Ireland. My artistic journey began in 1992 at l’Ecole des Beaux Arts in Poitiers, France, where I studied sculpture, drawing, and painting. This foundation led me to Ireland, where I worked in the theatre business and taught puppetry and mask making until the early 2000s.

In 2006, I graduated with an honours degree in fine arts in Ireland. Since then, my artistic career has been enriched by national and international exhibitions in locations such as the USA, Northern Ireland, China, and France. I am a former member of Artspace in Galway and G126 and currently serve as a board member and mentor for The International Encaustic Artists (IEA) organization. The IEA supports the growth and advancement of wax artists globally, providing opportunities and resources within an international community. Additionally, I participate in the Painting with Fire yearly online program, which brings together 27 world-renowned artists to offer encaustic masterclasses on a global scale.
