I am a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Montreal. 

In an ongoing creation of a warm nest to welcome fears and growth. 

  
At the moment, I allow myself to explore body movements openly, to find different ways of being, to construct and deconstruct.  


I want to be everything but it seems like I have to make choices. 

Decision making is easy for me when I create. 

(if only I could always see this life as my biggest creation)

Curious

: eager to know something 

a thirst for knowing where I can go 
while belonging and meeting each moment 

: unusual. strange 

I like to forget my throbbing desire to be different 
from who I am 
from others 

Still, I want to make a home 
with all of you & in my own being 

Learning to navigate the waves of strange contradictions 
within me.  



I grew up fascinated by rockscreaturesstars and the freedom of running in large fields. 

Sometimes it feels exciting 
                                futile 
                                                                             gauche to tell you who I am.


Yet the importance of trying is unquestionable, 

Know that my attempt to describe Me to You will always be morphing 
Please allow Us to always transform 


Context of existence: a deeply uncertain and playful world 

Certainties of the moment : I have the capacity to love, always & Smiles are precious
