The Laureates of the Liliane Bettencourt Prize pour l’intelligence de la main® (the intelligence of the hand) have come together to promote their professions at international level through this group of talents, rare holders of excellent savoir-faire. These unique personalities share a strong desire for exchanging ideas and genrating dialogue, both among themselves and with prescribers of art of living and creation.
A modern and sensitive vision, the invention of a seductive, contemporary and realistic post-classic, form the basis of the Laureates’ alliance, which already seduces the lovers of the beautiful.

The Liliane Bettencourt Prize pour l’intelligence de la main® rewards excellence, collaborative know-how, creativity and innovation in artistic craftsmanship.
Having become a symbol of French excellence, the prize reinforces the reputation of these women and men.
Since its inception, this competition open to professional craftsmen has crowned the talent of more than 100 winners in 50 different fields whose creations testify to the intelligence of the hand.

I use reserve dyeing (shibori) to reveal the heart of the textile material: silk, cotton, wool, pineapple or banana fiber.

What I'm proud of:

My participation in the "Koromo" exhibitions, clothes inspired by Japan at the initiative of Shukuko Voss-Tabe.
Having been a curator, in Salzburg (Textile Gallery), Paris (Mingei Arts Gallery) and Shikoku (Shikoku Mura Gallery) (2014-2018).
Be a member of International Shibori Network since 1986.
In 2018, my creations can be examined at the Tama Art Museum in Tokyo.
