Born in France, she started to paint seriously in the ‘90s.  She studied at the Art Students League in New York. After moving to Alexandria, Virginia,  she joined the Art League Association  at the Torpedo Factory Art Center  in 1995 and took various classes  and workshops  there  with well-known  Washington, D.C.  area artists  until 2001.  

Her oil paintings were exhibited  and sold  in  juried shows at the Torpedo Factory Art Center,  including the American Landscape show in 1998 juried by Eliza Rathbone, Chief Curator of The Phillips Collection in Washington. One of her “plein air” paintings is in the National Park Service‘s collection.  

After moving to Rhinebeck, NY, she joined the Woodstock Artists Association in 2002 where she participated in juried exhibits in oil and  watercolor.  She is now  painting mostly in watercolor and is taking classes with Betsy Jacaruso at the Courtyard, Rhinebeck, NY.  She is a member of the Barrett Art Center in Poughkeepsie, the Art Society of Kingston and the Cross River Fine Art. 

Because she has traveled extensively all over the world ,  she gets her inspiration from places she visits as well as from the Hudson Valley where she now resides.
