Surrounded by art...
since my childhood, I have been sharing my daily life with painters and scuptors in their workshops. Naturally, I developed a keen sense of observation and an ability to listen. From my teens onwards, I have accompanied them in galleries, trade shows and international fairs. This early start was followed by bachelor studies in business and history, and various trainings on the expertise and analysis of the art market. I was quickly introduced as a "collector". It was only natural that I would become an independent curator of exhibitions. Passionate about the art world, I decided to later hone my expertise in art advisory by doing a master's degree obtained at the University of Versailles Saint-Quentin in France.
One of my great passions...
is to accompany architects, interior designers and collectors, and to carry out extensive research so the pieces presented to them most correspond to their expectations. This is real detective work, involving many trips around the world. I also love discovering new talents to meet the needs of collectors, organisations, and private companies. Something for which I have a knack!
nowadays I am entrusted with research projects to reveal the careers of artists who have fallen into oblivion, provided they are of excellent quality. I particularly enjoy writing their biographies. Currently finishing my book: Princess Marguerite de Broglie (1883-1973), "The Princess Who Became A Fauve", gives me the opportunity to put into words the journey of all my cultural activities through the confluence of research, encounters and exhibitions. This creative process led me to discover the wonders of Art therapy. It is also thanks to the world of this incredible painter and noted author that I am focusing my research around the movement of Orientalist painters and European women travelling in the East. A whole universe into which I often lose myself.
I split my time between France and England.
Currently, I travel throughout South-East Asia as an art advisor to new clients.
