Isabelle talks passionnatly about her sculptures. When sculpting an animal she goes beyond its anatomy, she becomes very invested in her subject, she reads a lot to understand its caractere, its strenght, its mouvements and shape .
Isabelle has special relationship with her animals, sculpting for her goes far more then representing only the form of her animals but its also a description its behaviour, its habits and its different postures.
Her style is sensitive yet powerful they depict the life force of an animal in all of its visual splendor.
