Born on1970 in Vitré, I left my native Brittany quite young to study and start a family. 


My first professional life : 

I studied different fields : 

  • tourism,
  • business networking,
  • adult training engineering. 

After these first employments, I took the opportunity during a maternity leave to discover and try the pleasures of artistic expression. 


My second professional life : 

In 2000, on Mayotte Island, I started the first apprenticeship in watercolour with Gil, watercolourist a local self-taught artist.

Since then, I have kept on painting as an amateur, and became professional in 2012.


Lately, I have attended drawing classes at Orléans ‘ Fine Arts, and oil painting courses with Laure Pierre, at her Studio Belleba in Orléans. 


Almost every year, I attended classes offered by professional artists : 

  • Sylvie Chastenet (spécialiste du trompe l’œil -huile), trompe l’oeil painting oil
  • Sylvie Riclet (aquarelliste), watercolourist
