Biography

BIOGRAPHY

I am a French multi-discipline visual artist who graduated from University of Kent with a First-Class Honours degree in Fine Art in 2017. After graduating I took time off to look after my two young daughters and to develop my art practice and network.

The mediums and processes I use are not fixed but respond to the idea that I seek to explore. I am interested in the idea of reality beyond our immediate perception, which has led me to examine objects and concepts more closely and to also adopt a more holistic approach to my explorations and consider spatial and temporal dimensions.

I currently engage with the Sevenoaks Visual Arts Forum (SVAF), an artist led community and space at Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery, co facilitated by artists and curators Rosalind Barker and Sue Evans. I am also enrolled in the Fine Art Professional Development program (FAPD) based in Tonbridge and led by artists and lecturers Samuel Herbert and James Brooks (until 2020).

I would like to apply for a masters degree when I am able to fully commit to it. In the meantime, I am a volunteer at West Kent Mind where I co-facilitates the creative group.
