Biography

 

I was born in Paris, France and grew up in Vitry-Sur-Seine (94). I have been living in Canada for over 10 years, from Quebec City (QC), to Vancouver (BC) and now Whitehorse (YT). My job as a geologist is taking me to some of the most incredible parts of the planet.

As a child, I spent time in the youth art studio directed by Adek Zylberberg in l'Haÿ-les-Roses (94).

From 1990 to 2001, I was part of the Municipal Art School in Vitry-Sur-Seine. Hélène Picardi taught me classic art techniques, but most of all how to explore different mediums and subjects to develop my own style. I presented and was evaluated on part of my work at the Baccalauréat national exam in 2001.

From 2003 to 2007, I continued painting and drawing at home, and in adult art studios in Paris (13e) and Québec, QC.

During the fall of 2017, I took continuing education classes at Emily Carr University in Vancouver (BC). I learned about Illustration concepts and contexts with Vjeko Sager, and explored the medium of graphic novel with Julian Lawrence.
