A French national of multicultural origin, born in 1965 and mother of two, I have been living in Switzerland again since January 2018 after having left France in 1997 and lived for several years in Italy, Singapore and Japan.
This expatriate life is fascinating but requires great adaptability and pushed me to reinvent my life several times. After a very rewarding experience of 12 years in the field of industrial marketing and fashion, the field to which my studies had led me, I chose to study again to become an interior designer, profession that I have exercised for several years.
Expatriation to Asia from 2012 to 2017 allowed me to discover an extremely interesting world with a very different culture and I then decided to share the emotions I felt while capturing images in the streets. Photography appeared to me as an essential part of my life and I followed some workshops with inspiring photographers who helped me develop an artistic sensitivity and a certain consistency in my work.
Among other things, this allowed me to be selected for the KG + Award in 2017 with my BEHIND series and to be exhibited in Kyoto during the Kyotography festival. My work is usually judged as being delicate and poetic, while I'm always looking for a singular and sensible aestheticism in the outlook I put on the world around me.
