This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The artist's subjects are mostly sand deserts, most of the time there is a character walking in her remote landscape.  Her characters are almost never depicted with anatomical precision but with powerful gesture.  Drawing is not the principal foundation of her work, the movement of the stroke is the base of it.  Because of her powerful strokes, her works are often believed to have been done by a male artist.

Over the years she distinguished herself through a strong dynamism, attentive to lightings effects with gold powder, gold leaves and the use of more natural colours with pigments.  She likes  to create effects with a combination of an accumulation of colours and coatings.  Her dominant colour palette reaches from cadmium yellow to the high intensity of red crimson.
French by nationality, she was quite influenced by her catholic childhood when she lost both her parents during the war.  Her upbringing has not been a "Long Fleuve tranquille". Her personnality seems in many aspects an antithesis of that of a calm nature,  she is very solitary, a wandering artist, eccentric and restless. She can take ages to resume a painting, getting herself in some states of "folia". She also writes short stories.

She did not attend any arts school but has been the muse of famous writer and naïve painter Malcolm de Chazal (Mauritius Island). 

In her youth she used to be  Valentino's pupil.  He taught her some of his drawing techniques and they used to share a petit pain au chocolat, in Paris.

Her daughter taught her the art of painting as well as did Xu RenLong, prominent calligrapher in Beijing, China.(Museum of Modern Art, in Beijing).  She had several exhibition in Singapour  and was cited in the press: Straits Times, November 30,  1998,  Lian He Zao Pau (28 Nov. 28, 1998) in Hochimin City and was quoted in the press magazine MYthuat (2001) page 52.

Some of her paintings are now in palaces in Ryad.
