Tell us about yourself!
I was born and raised in a tiny European country called Luxembourg, surrounded by artwork. I earned a master’s degree in architecture in 2003 in Paris, France and my passion for contemporary glass art began in 1997 during a workshop with Michael Taylor at Pilchuck Glass School.
What draws you to the material you work with?
I’m driven by the desire to understand, experiment, discover, and share. Glass is multidimensional material. I enjoy the challenge of the complexity and the rhythm of the pâte de verre process.
What themes do you pursue in your work?
I’ve always observed and questioned the world I’ve lived in. After exploring themes like family, meaning of life, self-construction, I’m currently working on a series integrating urbanism and architecture.
What is your dream project?
One project is to lead a workshop in an inspiring place like Pilchuck or a Bullseye Glass. The second is to gather a team of artists to work on the cities’ narrative and prepare a common exhibition.
