Lives and works in Nîmes (in the department of Gard, France)

She was born in Lausanne in 1969.
Some years later, she emigrated to the Cevennes region in France and quite naturally enrolled at the Beaux-Arts de Nîmes school of art in 1986 before qualifying (DNSEP) in Montpellier in 1991.
In Nîmes, her love of painting was undoubtedly developed by meeting Vincent Bioul¨¨s, Alain Cl¨¦ment and Claude Viallat, amongst others.

During the time spent at the school of engraving, directed by François Dezeuze and Emilio Serrulla, she learned all of the different techniques of this discipline. Several years later, her taste for engraving resulted in the acquisition of a copper-plate press in order to allow her to develop her technique on a regular basis in her studio.

Today she shares her time between her studio in Nîmes and teaching art in local schools and colleges.
