I was born in 1989 in Avignon (France) where I grew up. I have always drawn and painted since I was able to hold a pen, of course, it was a lot less elaborated than my nowadays works! I started to take watercolour lessons at the age of eight with the painter Joyce Dekens. This is when I have learned how to prepare, draw, ink, and paint my artworks, that were mostly composed of still-lives and landscapes. I made my first exhibition at the age of twelve in Malaucene during an artists' exhibition where I won the golden medal of child category, and also a special prize made just for me, called "young hope" ! Then I dropped art lessons to do sports as bow and gun shoot as well as climbing for health reasons. During these years I mostly drew depending on my moods and inspiration. I went to high school and when I passed my A levels I went to the University in Montpellier to study Art History. This is when I started to paint again with watercolours, and I currently have several projects to achieve. I also started photography when I bought my first camera, which allows me to work by series and find models for my paintings. I hope for the future to be full of art for me, right now my priorities are to complete my studies and find a good job, and I keep art as a passion.
