Les roses de la Princesse

About the Monegasque Artist

A beautiful and lengthy career in fashion, especially Haute Couture, has instilled in me a taste for clean lines and clear, concise designs. Whether it’s fashion or painting, I prefer to get straight to the point without unnecessary frills.

Feeling a strong need to connect my two disciplines, I searched for a link that could captivate me… and I chose to incorporate volumes in various fabrics into my canvases. I then created the layering of large ruffles that I sewed onto my paintings to achieve a third dimension, and I realized that my paintings began to speak to me.

From there, I thought it would be interesting to cut, paint, and apply the same canvas as the quality of the painting onto the painted work for a play of reliefs sometimes a bit wild and disorderly. From this process, the idea of elements always cut from the same canvas but this time, extending beyond the edges of the frame, was born. These are the paintings that explode. An arm, a leg, or hair leaves the scene to land on the wall, giving an air of freedom.

My paintings stem from personal exploration, with subjects evoking the timeless nature of elegance and a spectacular aesthetic. My approach has no references and resembles nothing else… at least, that’s what I hope for.

Oscar Wilde’s quote: “I can resist everything except temptation.
