Who am I?

I have expressed my artistic side through drawing and painting for over 25 years.  Who am I? I’m a impressionist artist who live in France, in Paris. And I’m a mother of three grown children (and a grand-mother of 4 grand-children).  I balance my time between my two passions: my family and art.

I have always lived surrounded by art, thanks to my parents who loved beautiful objects, both classic and modern, as well as through my uncle, François Mitterrand, former French president and great patron to many modern artists.

After my art school studies, I decided to go into fashion design and wall decorating, before exploring canvas painting later on. My inspiration is drawn from the great impressionist painters of the 19th century as well as from my everyday life. I particularly enjoy capturing the places I love the most in my paintings. As the beaches in Brittany where my children used when they were younger. Or the luscious green countryside of Normandy around our family home, the oyster farms in Charente, the region where my father was born and of course. And Paris, which is forever in my heart.

I have been teaching drawing to children and adults for 15 years. And now I would love to welcome you into my world. I propose you unique experiences of painting lessons for adults and lovely children : an art class in my studiooutdoor painting lessons in Paris and a master painting class in Normandy.
Join me for a painting session in a friendly atmosphere.
See you soon!
