She completed her education at the school for perfumers in Grasse and perfected her technique in the famous laboratory of Carol André.

"My work is creative obviously, yet pragmatic and visionary. I make my emotions palpable in my creations. My work requires patience and perseverance. I am a poet who has chosen a different vocabulary to express myself, a vocabulary filled with dancing molecules.
