I was born in Belfort, northeast of France. From a very young age, I taught myself the arts of sketching, coloring, using different media and opening my mind on new styles. I took a 2-year class at the College of Fine Arts in Belfort and also built up my own experience by studying great artists from the Impressionists period up to now. Traveling in Europe and Asia led me to diversify my ways of addressing a theme. I also gained a lot through a network of new artists. In 2012 I moved to the USA and I started being a full-time artist. I took several classes with many renowned American pastel artists. After two years being a full-time manager of the Alliance Française French school in Roswell, GA, I moved in Ohio in 2020. Today I live my passion for art entirely.
I express my talent in different styles and media, using pastel because of its texture: it is just like drawing, painting and sculpting at the same time. I also love experimenting with acrylic painting and painting murals is my new crave!
I mostly paint from photographs or sketches. I like figurative painting when it captures the light and the shadow of a moment; I also appreciate abstract painting when it narrates intricate feelings. I am much inspired by XIXth century artists, Impressionist artists, contemporary artists as well as murals artists. I want my work to resemble me: passionate but a bit self-contained, fanciful and serious at the same time.
Since 2013, my work has been shown in many places in Atlanta and around, including the Atlanta Artist Center in Buckhead, Johns Creek Art Center, Gallery 4463 in Acworth, the Acworth Cultural Art Center, the Southeastern Pastel Society, the Oglethorpe Museum of Art, not to mention all. I am a SPS member, and my work has been awarded several times since I started pastel painting
