In an interview published on the Foundation’s website, the young visual artist recounts her journey. “I grew up in Paris, the world’s cultural capital, from an early age I was fascinated by art. The Louvre has always been my favorite place. I have always drawn, when I was younger at school, I drew during my lessons and often it was beauty that inspired me. I think art doesn’t come to us, it’s part of our being and our essence,” she says.

And to add: “My work fits into several styles ranging from abstract to figurative, from fluid art to surrealism. I explore styles according to my imagination and my creative process. The first canvases I made were of African inspiration. My favorite themes are beauty, the unconscious and the expression of feelings. Beauty has always been a source of fascination and a quest for perfection”.
