SOME WORDS FROM THE ARTIST
I am a foreigner everywhere. Daughter of a French father and a Mexican mother, I was born in Brazil and live in New York. My roots and ties are in all these places. Main references are inherited, lived and invented memories. They are mixed and confuse. With my feet in the air and clouds, I live and create in search of my place and my peers. I wish to inhabit, establish bonds, built affections. As a social environmentalist at heart, I love nature and people.
