His parents working abroad , she discovers at an early age, the joys of travel . She lived in Algeria , the Netherlands , Belgium and France , not to mention the many trips across Europe but also in the Persian Gulf .
Taste for color and design comes from childhood. Very young she reproduces photos and images in pencil and pen , for many years . It was around the age of 18 she decided to deepen the painting, and begins very tormented works, but also abstract or colorful.

In 2001, following several degrees including a Technical Sales BTS, she decided to pursue her dream of attending classes at the Beaux Arts. Enrolled in courses at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in the city of Liege, Belgium, it was released in 2005, graduated in monumental painting.

Its diverse painting is a reflection of a complex personality. Emotions, moods , torments , fears, reflect an experience, a moment of life . A more critical look at its environment pushes a heavy atmosphere or creaky , dark tones, stark and whistleblowers. Then mingle words, contrasts , collage ...
Are thus treated topics such as choking spirits by the omni presence of advertising, seeking profits to the winds , the degradation of the world by humans. She points to the absurdity incurred in our current society .

A very personal style , steady development.
