faucons portrait .jpg

I was born in Moscow in 1977. I arrived in Belgium when I was 18 to work as an au pair, where I subsequently studied law and management. After 15 years’ career working in international companies, I decided to take up sculpturing, thus renewing a childhood passion.

I have been described as someone full of energy. It is this energy that I would like to breathe into the pieces I work on. I am fascinated by the idea of ​​infusing movement into a sculpture. It is a wonderful challenge, working in bronze, to capture a movement at that moment of  intensity and to give an impression of lightness! My desire is that my works dance, jump and play ... that they are alive!

 

I am inspired by life around me. At the same time, I have realised that in my bronze sculptures, I re-create my childhood dreams.: figure-skating, ballet, gymnastics ... I watched these for hours on television when I was a little girl in Moscow. I admire these women (and men) who through effort and determination manage to give us an incredible impression of elegance and lightness ... This is also what I aim to achieve in my work ...

My atelier is in the Tervuren Park.  You can contact me if you want to come visit me.
