Research and experimentation are the source of her creations. Driven by the desire to contribute to the field of contemporary jewellery, but also to transform and change it, her artistic statement is based on the research of emotions through form and color. Self-taught and trained by her artist parents, she also graduated from the Jewellery School of Montreal, in 2013. Throughout her young career, her innovative work has been distinguished through several prizes, awards and distinctions. She won the Prix François-Houdé in 2017 and was finalist at the Niche Student Awards (2013) and the Arts and Crafts Awards (2014). In 2016 and 2017, her work exhibited in prestigious exhibitions such as SOFA Chicago (USA), Parcours Bijoux (France), The Canadian craft biennial (Canada), Joya (Spain), Autor (Romania) and Art + Jewelry: Intersecting Spaces (Benaki museum, Greece). Her work can be seen at L.A Pai Gallery (Ottawa) as well as
Noel Guyomarc’h (Montreal).

Lost in my imaginary world where everything is so delightful. That little place inside myself where everything is calm, joyful and pretty. Where my mind goes when everything is so hard outside, in the real world. These crazy forms of nature made from artificial materials are the result of that retreating into that special world that protects myself from not going crazy in the real world. They touch all our senses. We want to eat them as if they were candies, to touch them because of their appearance so smooth, spongy and colourful. They apprehend some exchange, some dialogue with the world and people around them. This interaction is essential in life. They definitively make you smile and fill you with a sentiment of satisfaction. We all need that little break to full our body with a bit of joy. Enjoy!
