About the Artist

I was born in Montpellier, France in 1995, later moving to Spain before settling
into Virginia in 2007. Growing up in a variety of old European cities surrounded by a rich history deeply influenced my artwork. Throughout my life, I read broody Romantic novels of the 18th and 19th centuries that often featured intricate and haunting etchings, and this soon became a main source of inspiration, along with my growing collection of curious Victorian photography and trinkets. I work primarily in graphite, charcoals, and ink. The style ranges from detailed, crosshatched scenes of gothic romance and melancholy to loose charcoal portraits of imagined fops and dandies. Themes of loss, pride, vanity, and love populate my work.
