Biography

“WHEN I LOOK AT A SATELLITE PHOTO, I FEEL AN INTENSE EXCITEMENT. ... BUT I’VE ALSO NOTICED IT IN MANY OTHER PEOPLE.  I THINK IT MIGHT BE A MEMORY IN OUR GENES. IT MIGHT BE SOMETHING WE’VE SEEN BEFORE BECAUSE WE ARE ALL STARDUST, RIGHT?”

With a distinguished career trajectory marked by major accomplishments, the French-born artist made her way from Copenhagen to Paris, carved a creative career in New York then set up home studio in view of an extinct volcano in Honolulu. At an early age, she obtained her masters degree in sculpture from The Beaux-Arts de Paris and was pushed to excellence in artistic techniques by the best minds in the “City of Light”. She designed sets for opera, theater and movies in Paris and moved on to New York as lead scenic designer for groundbreaking music videos for artists like George Michael and Janet Jackson. She reinvented and sculpted the long-lost angels statue that currently adorns the apex of the iconic Flatiron Building in Manhattan. The Artist has built an impressive reputation with her paintings that are highly sought after by discerning collectors in America and Abroad. Her “Pristine Series” presents satellite views of volcanoes around  the globe, reality-based paintings that can also be read as abstractions.
