Born on August 29, 1976 in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo.
As a child her father, painter David MAKOUMBOU, initiated her in the art of painting. She really engaged in art since 1989.
In her paintings and sculptures she emphasizes social activities of African women. Generally, she uses knifes to create her oil paintings. Her works [focus on preserving African traditions through art, by creating representations of rural life scenes, with an emphasis on celebrating the essential role of women in those societies] excel in realistic and cubic style.
Since 2002, she creates sculptures from compound materials (sawdust and wood glue), some of which are over 3 meters (9.84 feet).
As from 2003, she started an important international career, and exposes now in the whole world.
