Darédo's works are imbued with a certain mysticism in which her fears, emotions and hopes are intimately intertwined. The invisible, the unspeakable, death, the beyond, and mankind’s place in the universe, are her recurring themes, an intimate and spiritual transposition of reality. Darédo's drawings reflect the close and inextricable relationship between man and nature. Spirits, walking beings, monsters, gorgonians, and fallen angels gravitate together in a primeval maelstrom where anything is possible.
After a long time favoring acrylic, the ballpoint pen has now become her chosen medium. Each of her drawings can be seen as a scene, a theatre of magical forces where tragicomedy is constantly being played out. All the elements are linked together thanks to the chiaroscuro presence of a mesh, a sort of jungle that gives the whole a certain intimacy.
Born in Montpellier, Darédo still lives in the south of France where she has been drawing and painting for twenty years.
