About me

I have always been inspired to create and express myself with different types of medium. From the beaches of Normandy to growing up in the vast terrain of the Alps, studying in Paris, living in Brighton and now London. I have consistently been in awe of the landscapes, light and atmosphere around me. After studying industrial design and car design for 5 years, experiences at Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Hermès and Louis Vuitton, I now work as a Feelance Designer, Painter and Photographer.
