Creative Process


Originally from the Laurentides (Quebec, Canada), I live and work in Montreal (Quebec, Canada).

As a multidisciplinary visual artist, I explore the echo created between abstraction and figuration, the digital and the material, the two-dimensional and the three-dimensional. To do so, I mix different artistic practices such as painting, drawing, 2D animation and sculpture. I pay particular attention to shadows and light, both rivals and complementary, but also to colors, rich in their symbolism and creators of emotions.

Fascinated by the complexity of the human being, my works represent the multiple disorders present in our current society which I analyze in the light of disciplines such as philosophy, psychology, sociology and theology. I translate the archaic moral ideals, that shape our society and our collective unconscious, into a more current, neutral and universal approach.

Identifying myself as queer, my creations tend to reach an ideal of neutrality. I often address the question of identity and gender complexity, finding inspiration from my own personal reflections and experiences.
