Raised by biologists, the subject matter of her work is directly influenced by this immersive background in the sciences and natural world. Equally inspired by the cosmos, her studies in drawing and painting culminated with a thesis on psychedelic art, spanning from Hieronymus Bosch to the Beat Generation.
While earning her masters degree in drawing and painting at ENSCI Paris, she worked as a set designer for fashion shows for both Chanel and Fendi. She credits her time in Paris with her fascination in other cultures, leading her to Bali where she discovered a passion for fabric and pattern design. Her playful, corporeal, and decorative artwork can now be seen on silk scarves and other pieces within the collections of Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Frette.
