I’ve been a painter for 10 years, now I am a transdisciplinary artist.
I studied painting during my art studies and had the chance to exhibit during a major art fair in the Grand Palais, Paris (2020), at the Galerie Thuillier, Paris (2020) and in Tennessee (since 2021) as well as in Provence, at several times.
I graduated from a Bachelor’s in Arts cum laude, a Master’s degree in Arts cum laude and a Master’s degree in Management & Marketing cum laude from Aix-Marseille Université. I have been practicing arts (painting, illustration, design) for 10 years, after spending my childhood drawing.
I was lucky to exhibit my art in France, Germany and the United States and have sold paintings on 3 continents. I have won 4 art prizes so far.
- American art critics David Galloway encouraged me to pursue my work he found “interesting”.
- Burlesque performer Dita von Teese appreciated my portrait of her via instagram.
- BernardoBertolucci.org appreciated my Stealing Beauty illustration for an online review on Le Mag du Ciné, via instagram.
Actual series (mixed media, since 2021): transdisciplinary artworks (images mixed with words and/or photos)
My actual practice is transdisciplinarity, through the mingling of images (illustrations) with text and photos.
words & images: I explore the fusion of both my activities: writing and visual art. As both an author and an artist (painter/illustrator), I find a way to reconcile both these practices by creating artworks that can be looked at and read.
I like the fact that it changes the look. The reading is parasitized by the colors and shapes of the image that interfere with the words. And while looking at the image, the text appears and can modify the sense (for example in the pin up series where the text is classic and out of phase) or comfort it (in the novel series, the words give information about the visual).
Mixed media: digital illustration printed on paper (59,4 x 42 cm) and modified with painting, unique artworks. To be framed.
Here under are the digital versions (first step of the process), the printing and painting will follow.
photos & images: I edit my illustrations over photos of the streets of Aix-en-Provence or other cities. The purpose is to bring a form of magic in the town by adding art all over its walls, in a digitally edited way. Images and photos of reality interact and become more.
words & images
- La Saison Sauvage (The Wild Season)
5 image-series inspired by the characters and nature (Provence) of my eponymous novel that will be published in France, in late November 2022 by Editions Unicité.
The text comes from the novel and accompanies the images, giving precisions about the protagonists.
Salomé (cypress) – Ariel (lavender) – Sauveur (Fig tree) – Lupe (Thyme) – Fenicia (Olive tree)

- Faces in the city (2021)
