My creative process starts in old bookstores and thrift shops searching for inspiring pictures and pieces of paper in magazines and encyclopedias. I enjoy giving another life to second-hand pieces. I make unusual portraits and create funky universes with them. My collages are all analogue. Sometimes, I use watercolour and other techniques to spice them up! I have been making collage since my early twenties. I think making collage is the best stress reliever and fun inducer.


I started making collage in my early twenties as a hobby. I studied social work and now work in that field. I live in Québec City. During my studies, I held collage workshops with people who were having different issues. In the last year, I dedicated more time to my creative process. I participated recently in a popular local flea market and had the chance to exhibit my art for the first time.
