Bio

Born in France in 1974.
Photographer and collage artist. I live and work in Hong Kong. 

I studied foreign languages (english and chinese, LVQ level 5) and new technologies. I worked 12 years in public relations (food & beverage marketing), including 4 years in China.
In January 2009, I left the marketing world and settled as a full-time freelance photographer, and started to work on my first collage pieces. 

My son was born in November 2011. 


In early 2013 I created  Kidlighbox®, a one-of-a-kind children workshop dedicated to photography and visual arts, which I ran in different places, public and private.
I live in Hong Hong since 2015 where I run a weekly photography & visual arts workshop at Montessori primary school.

 

Since 2016 I have fully integrated the three-dimensional photocollage technic into my artistic approach, which allows me to push the bounderies of photography and explore new fields such as time layers and the distortion of reality.

My chinese name was given by my first mandarin teacher in secondery school in 1988.
