A unique style

Passionate about art history, architecture, and design, she revisits styles combining the inspiration of the Flemish school and the spirit of the Italian Renaissance with contemporary art.

The art of cardboard

“Luxury cardboard” or “couture cardboard” are the expressions used by her admirers to define her work of great precision with constantly renewed creativity. The pieces are made to measure, by hand, in recycled cardboard. Each object is unique, and great attention is paid to the wishes of her customers. Presented in its natural form, painted, smooth or wavy, in flat format or highly worked, the cardboard lends itself to endless variations.

“I like working with cardboard with rigor and precision, changing the way we look at it.

Carton Noir is the name of one of my emblematic models."

A Showroom - Workshop

Carton Noir creations are on display in the workshop showroom in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, an old 18th century carpentry shop cradled by the Sorgue river.
