Although Jadis grew up in an environment that was not particularly conducive to artistic creation, she was always naturally creative. Without much conviction, she turned to a profession in business, moving from job to job without ever really finding her place. By chance, an artist friend invited Jadis to create wood sculptures with her and her taste for working with materials was awakened as she embraced this new passion wholeheartedly.
With this artistic revelation she became more closely interested in art, studying museums and books and forging her own artistic culture. Meanwhile, she practiced different techniques (painting on wood, acrylic, oil) and tried painting both figuratively and abstractly.
Aware of the need to find her own artistic language, she established her own style and took on a pseudonym.
Jadis’ creations start with the chance placement of the first coat of paint, she then prepares the canvas with different coatings (plaster, paper, collage). Not necessarily taking into account the background she has created, she begins painting with acrylic, using various work methods: making her own colors, moving from brushes to knives and alternating layers of transparent glazes with thick paint.
She creates abstract works by playing with shapes and colors. She is constantly in search of balance, the paintings evolve as they develop through her mastery of technique. Hers is a painting of great strength, which nevertheless describes gentle and serene emotion.
Quickly recognized and lauded, Jadis’ paintings are listed in Artprice and Drouot. She has also been offering private lessons in her public studio and gallery since 2005.
Self-taught, Jadis sees herself as constantly evolving, as she actively searches for a better balance of form and color.
