Greatly passionate about mushrooms and wild plants for healing and nourishment, she followed training in the identification and collection of non-timber forest products (NTFP). In 2016, she created her company, the Vitaforêt workshop, whose mission is to raise awareness of NTFPs through training and harvesting activities in respect of the natural environment.

    Under the pseudonym Racine du Monde, the artist whose sculptural assemblages integrate various plant and organic substances confronting humans with their natural and cultural environment from a perspective of environmental awareness, offers an approach to his work that is both historical and more traditional. , more community-based and directly integrated into the environment where it is located.

    By accumulating training, she has acquired from English, French, American and Japanese master basket weavers, various ancestral techniques and know-how transmitted from generation to generation, which she links with traditional practices of the territory: such as restoration chair bottoms and the botanical principles surrounding the cultivation and collection of raw materials used in basketry.
