Born and raised in Aix en Provence she developed from an early age her artistic sensibility and love for colours inspired by the diverse palette you find in Provence.
With an art specification in High school she was able to grow her passion for art and diversify it to different domain of application.
At 21 she left France to discover new horizons and spent 4 years working for a Filipino designer in Manila who soon became a Mentor. It led her to interior design projects while developing custom made furniture pieces for the company.
