Graduated in scenography from La Cambre ENSAV (Brussels), she starts to work in 2006 as a set and costume designer for many different companies ; for cinema, theater, opera, dance, street theater or circus. At the same time, she has also founded her own company with other young artists called Compagnie Lune et l’autre, who produced projects between installation and theater, mostly inquiring the place of the spectator in a performance (La foire aux monstres, Les puces, En-quête).  In 2011, she was an assistant teacher in scenography at La Cambre ENSAV and two consecutive years in 2015-2016, she also directed a workshop in installations and performances in scenography at EPS St-Luc in Bruxelles.

Then she used to work in several events (Magritte’s Museum, BSF, …).

This lasts years, she worked on the Claudio Stellato company’s wood installations (la Cosa) and she is sharing a studio at the BAMP.

Two years ago, she started developing her own visual language through a video installation research. She’s currently developing a black and white universe of video installations made of sensations, accidents, improvisations and black humor. (ANTICHAMBRE, PLAY, INVADERS)
