My studies

Professionally educated as a ballet dancer, I have spent 12 years of my early life learning from the awareness of my body as my working instrument. Since a young age I was fascinated by shapes and movements of the human being. I evolved through daily observation of other dancers, on stage and in their training.

Looking for new creative possibilities, I then turned to graphic design and visual communication, where I found ways to touch viewers through their eyes, to connect to their inner motions, their emotions.

The source of my current work

Combining visual communication with my knowledge of the body and movement, I jump from technique to technique, adapting them to the current needs of my work.

At this time in my life, I am mainly working with questions of inner movement and the strength of their honesty, versus learned movements that come from external sources. Body-Mind Centering, created by Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen, is a very present method in this. I explore through dance improvisation and choreography, but also very much through photography and painting.
