About me

I’m a french born artist / designer living in Australia since 2004. I now work part time as an editorial designer for one of the largest publishing companies in Australia as well as pursuing my dream as an artist. I have been commissioned in various art projects including an exhibition in Melbourne and Sydney. My work was also featured in the 2010 Semi-Permanent book, a few magazines, the TOP design TV shows and some blogs.
I have a passion for art, technology and storytelling and i can see how my design work is linked to my art and vice-versa.
I mainly depict the human-animal interaction in our modern society through the making of art. Our fast-paced modern world doesn’t always allow us to experience an intimate connection with the natural world we are hoping to save.
As a figurative painter, I explore the forms and meaning in our human and animal worlds. I use a pop-infused colour palette to express the emotions and the distinct personality of my subjects. Colour combinations I use convey particular feelings and self-expression. I use different types of palette knives to give a rough texture, and to capture and invoke the raw emotions on to the canvas. I then employ drip-painting using a paint brush.
Aside from my paintings, I’m also working with a friend on an art project: Endcount, aiming to bring attention to animal species on the brink of extinction. It’s a generative art piece.

OPENING 27.03.2014 at PIERMARQ GALLERY, JONES BAY WHARF. www.endcount.com

Endcount is an art collective project between myself and Joe Bramwell-Smith, that aims to bring attention to species on the brink of extinction. The numbers are dropping each year, unless we do something about it. This series of unique generative artworks where art, and technology intersect will hopefully make a difference.

My volunteering experience in Thailand

Continue Reading

Tuesday the 10th: Here I am, with my backpack ready to jump on the plane for Thailand. I was very much looking forward to sharing this experience with my best friend. She lives in France.
And there here we are in Bangkok.
After a crazy night in Bangkok (where we barely slept!), a car came to take us to the WFFT centre. The Centre was located within Thayang in the Phetchaburi province of Thailand about 160 km south of Bangkok. It was a fairly remote location, not far from a small village situated alongside a large lake.
