"Art has an economical value that we often can't put into numbers, but an art gallery professional is a value expert. A gallerist will look into the background of the artist first as a way to weigh their art's value. Their exhibition history and artist background plays a huge role when determining value. How many places and where the artist has exhibited correlates with the value a artwork currently has and the potential it will have in the future. For example, Anne Plaisance, a French artist currently residing in Massachusetts will have greater value artworks due to her history and involvement in the art world. Anne's resume shows that she has exhibited all over the world for many years which adds significant value to her works. Like fine wine, art will only become more valuable with age."

Born to (painting series)

This series is an anthropological anthology, a diary and mirror, which highlights women as subjects not objects, under the prism of beauty, identity, power, sexuality & gender, empowerment, society’s criticism, emotions and beliefs. I decided to do this lifelong project, after seeing the Roman Opałka Numbers series, powerful in its universality and contemplative beauty (measuring time and time itself) but demanding in its asceticism. I came up with a figurative project - portraits –inspired by the renaissance and Da Vinci spirit but closer to magical realism. The focus is mainly on women, since I want it to be a reflection, easy to identify with for a larger number of people and appealing aesthetically. I am exploring an infinity of faces, materials techniques, colors, sizes, and subjects (born to survive, to dream, to love, to consume, to die, to suffer, to hope, to fly, to forgive, to play, to bloom, etc..). I express through it my tenderness for humanity, confront what is intimate and public, poetic and tragic, historic and synchronic, personal and universal, easy and demanding. Besides, strong artists as Kara Walker, Louise Bourgeois, Kiki Smith inspire me and give me the courage to take a stand, embrace uncomfortable/taboo subjects and to go beyond the limits I think I might have as a woman (culture, education, society, beliefs, geographic situation).

Please tell her that I love her (abstract painting series) – (2017- ongoing)

In 2017, my younger child went to the hospital for depression and social anxiety, trying to kill herself multiple times. I was devastated. I could not find the time nor the energy to create. When I did so, the figurative artworks were dark and death themed. I decided to go outside my comfort zone and explore abstract painting, forms, compositions, joyful colors, as a survival and healing tool. To find some joy in the place of despair I was. After 8 long months at the hospital, she’s back home and feeling better: I decided to share our family story to give hope to those going through similar situations.
