Her artistic approach reflects her questions about life. Her favorite themes: transformation, appearance and reality, illusion and mirror effects, shadow and light, The weaver Celine Ferron, founded the Atelier Cc Brindelaine in Aubusson/Felletin. The workshop combines the ancestral know-how of weaving on the low-warp loom placed horizontally working with local wools and vegetable dyes.
