Interpretation of the work by the artist:

In this work, the essential element is water.


At the same time represented by the frame which suggests the sea, the lagoon and the color projections on the face of the character which suggest the rain. The portrait represented is a woman from Polynesia, both of Western and Polynesian culture. This woman is somehow in the water, since the frame that represents the lagoon surrounds her.


She savors the pleasure of contact with this element on her skin. The meaning of this work is both to honor this major natural element in Polynesia and at the same time threatened by pollution and the shortage (of fresh water) that is coming.

Éveil - Colin

  • She likes to mix both portraiture and figurative nature with mixtures of fluid paintings, whose colors are borrowed from nature as the different shades of blue, ochre, the color hers ... in a spontaneous and uncontrolled. Sometimes, she adds to this association, calligraphy that accentuates the link in her paintings between the past and the words of the present.

*Colors may vary from one screen to another.
