I graduated from The EDTA SORNAS Graphic School, Paris, France with a Bachelor of Visual Communications degree (Graphic Design Major).
In 2000, I moved to Aix-en-Provence, France to gain experience at different creative firms and to develop my art career (a lot of major artists went to catch the light of South of France).
In 2004, I began working as a graphic designer at the medical event agency Com&Co Events. Four years later, I became Art Director Associated and throughout my 8 years there, I was responsible for executing all creative for the medical events and managing an interactive design studio attached to the firm, for clients like Abbott, eV3 & other major pharmaceutical firms.
A multidisciplinary artist
I am also a self-taught artist. My art career began in 1995 with my first solo exhibition in Paris.
In 2013, I had my first exhibition in an art gallery - the Peyton Wright gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
In April 2014, I decided to become professional artist.
In April 2015, I attended an art residency in NYC, to explore art galleries & to also find myself as artist.
I create emotional landscapes inspired by unconscious relations between humankind & environment on different mediums, such as painting, digital art & iPhone snapshots.
I have participated in many collective and solo shows throughout France, Europe and US since 2015.
I am also represented by several art galleries in the US.
