I am a young artist born in the Iles-de-la-Madeleine, a beautiful archipelago in eastern Canada. Returned to practice arts in my home region after studying communication, visual arts and marine biology, I work with glass at La Méduse, in the workshop where my father, who is a glassblower as well, has passed on me his know-how and passion for working with glass.

Today, firmly rooted in my practice and my environment, it is the encounters between glass and people that are at the heart of my artistic approach. I look for the common thread, link, bridge that will bring out a new approach to the material I touch.

I create and practice in Îles-de-la-Madeleine, in the heart of the Gulf of St. Lawrence since 2013.
