French born artist has always used art as a means of expression, empowerment, and enjoyment. Through her art she tries to transform the canvas into a story that celebrates life and forces the viewer to look closer at the world around them. She finds beauty in people packed streets wondering what might be going on in those people’s lives. The primary source of inspiration in her subject matter comes from her European roots and love of travel. She likes to use color to paint a magical feeling of the world that one may see in the day-to-day.
