When the hands shape without constraints,
it gives a lot of softness…
◦ My Story
My figurines have been largely inspired by my childhood (spent between Africa and the Caribbean), Naive Art (notably haitian), Modern Art, as well as Street Art, the latter of which I am an absolute fan. From my studio in Québec I use grogged white clay, allowing me to work with more “substance” between my fingers. Emerging from my imagination, my creations hardly respect the traditional codes of drawing. I am not trying to create an ideal or perfect character, because my goal is to make those who look at them, smile; these figurines are in no shape or form spokespeople to any ideal. I mould my characters in a state of self-abandonment, it is often the clay that leads my hands where it wants to go….
