“My monotypes are the result of my exploration of the found object. I use it as a printing material to reveal, on paper, its texture and hidden beauty. Indeed, when I print, I like to show what is not immediately revealed to the eye of the viewer: the grooves of the LP, the design of a flat aluminum can, the texture of lace.”

“Although the subjects in my work are serious, examining some of the challenges of our society, the prints create a visual poetry and humor, apart from stereotypes. They are X-rays of our society.”
